Paper on computational models for user participation in design at ECAADE 2013, Delft

I presented my paper Performed by and Performative for: Rethinking computational models for user participation in design at the ECAADE2013 Conference in Delft. The conference was themed Computation and Performance. Abstract: In this paper I identify the “infrastructure model” as the predominant approach to computationally

Open Architectures studio at the BAC

In the fall 2013 I designed and taught a graduate studio at the Boston Architectural College, grappling with the idea of openness in architecture. I was fortunate to have a great roster of students with fresh ideas and inquisitive minds.
