Digital Syncretism: Exuberance and Convolution

11 de octubre de 2010   | Vistas: 7 |  

Architecture, viewed as art, has evolved through time in many different aspects. It has embraced diverse contemporary elements that complement it in the task of making this art much more attractive for people. In this video, Marjan Colletti explains this process and describes several of the prevailing tendencies in the world. Technology, which has acquired a tremendous importance in our society, plays a great role in the evolution of architecture. Topics such as exuberance, syncretism, and convolution are some of the most common and important currents  influencing it presently. Colletti exemplifies these currents using varied architectural digital and physical examples from his own creation and demonstrates how he has influenced his students in pursuing these types of innovations throughout their careers.

Marjan Colletti is coprincipal of Marcosandmarjan Design Limited, in London. He is architect, architectural educator and researcher. He is also…
