It is a fully connected world.
We are all here, it is noisy, crowded, full of hosts and guests, subjects and objects, all parasites.
We remember everything.
What to say? Who to listen to? How to reason?
I want to forget 🙂
The figure of the parasite will help us to take a stance and have a face.
Architecture is our stage, the parasite is the essence of relations.
One parasite hosts the other.
Anthony Bourdain gets a Carte Blanche to invent a 300 m2 project in one of the Mong Kok blocks in Hong Kong (22.315753481875348, 114.16969824182289). In return, he should host the block owner whenever he appears.
Studio 0MORE uses Artificial Intelligence to deal with online information in large quantities and articulate: a MOVIE to set the direction of the project, a BRAND to give it a face, a BANQUET to discuss design decisions, and PERSPECTIVES to observe the project’s position in the city.
For Studio 0MORE, today’s connected world requires the architect to be a digitally literate persona and nimble in addressing the ideas that challenge the world on a global scale, in the same manner as the 2,000 year old tradition of architecture treatises demands from itself.
The goals of the Studio 0MORE are:
Identify and construct an understanding of today’s technologies.
Develop methodologies to design architecture with an abundance of online information.
Perform delicate balances between Artificial Intelligence and Human Intelligence.
Assess the importance of being a digitally literate architect today.
