Prototypes and Protocols

14 de marzo de 2011   | Vistas: 36 |   Innovation Modernism Research Technology

Architectural currents and designs define themselves according to their authors, ideas and inspirations. Such currents may vary from time to time, and also in regards to clients needs and expectations. In this video Meejin Yoon and Eric Höweler portrait their view of this magnificent art by demonstrating several of their most emblematic and important projects around the world, based on the integration of both prototypes and protocols. The two talented architects explain their motivations and views, which consequently lead them to create and achieve such innovative and multidisciplinary results. They also explain how design plays its part in the creation process, and focus on its importance, in order to create a real work of art.
