December 9 2020 How is AI - Artificial Intelligence -  Changing Architecture - Interview to Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Director MS in Architecure Computational Technologies program

AI + architecture: Our MS in Architecture Computational Technologies Program featured in LifeWire including an interview on Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Architecture to our Director Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, here are some quotations: AI architecture is such a hot field that the New York Institute of Technology is starting a new graduate program in Architecture, Computational Technologies.  "Instead of designing buildings, architects need rather to design the systems that inform the built environment," Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, an associate professor of architecture and director of the program, said in an email interview. "The contemporary architect designs algorithms, robotic systems, robots for construction, and even new materials, that inform architecture."

Data, Matter, Design
Strategies in Computational Design
Edited By Frank Melendez, Nancy Diniz, Marcella Del Signore

Book Chapter Publication

Ecoinduction III: Rezoning NYC Through Big Data: Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Alejandro Mieses Castellanos


Book Description


Data, Matter, Design presents a comprehensive overview of current design processes that rely on the input of data and use of computational design strategies, and their relationship to an array of outputs. Technological changes, through the use of computational tools and processes, have radically altered and influenced our relationship to cities and the methods by which we design architecture, urban, and landscape systems. This book presents a wide range of curated projects and contributed texts by leading architects, urbanists, and designers that transform data as an abstraction, into spatial, experiential, and performative configurations within urban ecologies, emerging materials, robotic agents, adaptive fields, and virtual constructs. Richly illustrated with over 200 images, Data, Matter, Design is an essential read for students, academics, and professionals to evaluate and discuss how data in design methodologies and theoretical discourses have evolved in the last two decades and why processes of data collection, measurement, quantification, simulation, algorithmic control, and their integration into methods of reading and producing spatial conditions, are becoming vital in academic and industry practices.

DigitalFUTURES WORLD: ARCHITECTS UNITE
A One Week Series of 24/7 Free Online Workshops & Talks
June 27- July 03, 2020
https://www.digitalfutures.world/

As part of a global event comprising 70 workshops and a non-stop series of talks, NYIT SoAD Associate Professor Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa and Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Tom Verebes, will co-teach a workshop, BIG DATA DYNAMICS, representing NYIT SoAD in this important and unprecedented initiative. Open to students and design professionals worldwide, all workshops and talks are offered free of charge, in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

This initiative brings together these two themes, the Digital and the Future, to create an online platform for a continuous, week long series of talks and workshops, exploring every aspect of the potential impact of the digital on our lives. In so doing this initiative itself becomes an example of the new possibilities afforded by the digital.

As the 10th anniversary edition of the DigitalFUTURES series, DigitalFUTURES World will operate as a continuous 24/7 event, broadcast across the different time zones in the world, operating like a relay as each of the 3 time zones passes on the baton to the next time zone. But at the same time it will offer dedicated workshops with a coherent theme and carefully structured schedule taught by some of the most inspirational instructors in the world within each time zone.

The model proposed is inspired by the LiveAid concerts where musicians come together and donate their time for free for good causes. So too it is inspired by One World: Together at Home, Lady Gaga’s recent gesture of bringing some of the leading musicians together in their living rooms, and beaming a message of good will into other living rooms throughout the world. The model is also inspired by the Olympics, an event that has always sought to transcend political divisions and bring the world together. The 2020 Olympics had to be postponed as a result of the virus. The symbol of the Olympics consists of rings metaphorically bringing together the 5 continents. A meme of these rings being kept apart has been one of enduring images of the impact of the virus. This event seeks to bring the 5 continents back together again, similarly transcending political divisions.

THE POLITICS OF BIG DATA: FROM SURVEY, TO IDEAL, BACK TO AN INFORMED REALISM

Invited Associate Professor Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa UIC Barcelona, NYIT Associate Professor, Studio-Workshop Summer 2020

The Studio first surveyed Gaudi Sagrada Familia in Barcelona through Big Data gathering and processing, understanding the act of survey as an initiator of the study-design. Understanding reading as a form of design, students surveyed, read, understand and expand upon discoveries of Sagrada Familia. Then the studio worked out latent relationships in the building through Big Data processing using dynamic structural simulation and optimization looking for latent repressed opportunities in the readings of the project. Therefore the studio, related form to structural performance through dynamic interactive computational systems. Students worked with several types of computational simulation, including Big Data survey, VR simulation, and evolutive simulations. The objective of the studio is to compare the original form of the surveyed building to a contemporary means to measure catenary forces, and from this analysis, critique, find problems and expand opportunities to displace, build up and expand upon Gaudi’s strategies.

 Workshop final review participants included Alberto Estevez, Tom Verebes, Nelson Montas, Niccolo Cassas, Matias del Campo.

2020-05-04 Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa to participate of Harvard University Graduate School of Design Student Lecture via web page publication statement (due to covid-19). Agency-Urgency, QUARANTINED, Design Research Forum (DRF) curated by Harvard GSD students Anirudh Gurumoorthy, Delara Rahim, Aditi Agarwal, Yashada Wagle, Jimmy Pan, Wilfred Guerron, Ryan Beitz, Aurora Jensen, Pameral Cabrera Pardo, Samuel Maddox, Stella Rossikopoulou Pappa, Nicolas Queijan. Online web lecture/statement publication to become a printed publication. Design Research Forum (DRF) is a student-run organization formed to highlight design research going on in and around the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Design research is the process of inquiry, ideation, iteration, and illustration that underpins and runs in parallel to the acts of planning, proposing, and implementing design. As such, this work is integral to the work of all students within the GSD but may not always be expressly examined or celebrated. It is in that void that DRF operates, working to facilitate a more complete and nuanced design discourse to the GSD community.

2019 03-15 Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa essay and applied research "The Post-Digital as Design Authorship in Informed Material Processes" published in: Instabilities and Potentialities, ed. Chandler Ahrens and Aaron Sprecher, Routledge Taylor and Francis, New York, 2019

Now that information technologies are fully embedded into the design studio, Instabilities and Potentialities explores our post-digital culture to better understand its impact on theoretical discourse and design processes in architecture. The role of digital technologies and its ever-increasing infusion of information into the design process entails three main shifts in the way we approach architecture: its movement from an abstracted mode of codification to the formation of its image, the emergence of the informed object as a statistical model rather than a fixed entity and the increasing porosity of the architectural discipline to other fields of knowledge. Instabilities and Potentialities aims to bridge theoretical and practical approaches in digital architecture. From the editors

 "The Post-Digital as Design Authorship in Informed Material Processes", Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa's Introduction: "The current, digital-fabrication revolution is based on widespread adoption of complex, digital techniques, which contrasts with the seemingly impossible worlds conceived by the previous revolution. But, the proliferation of digital techniques ended up replacing personal design agendas. A strangesense of similar complexity was perceived in the indexing of the structural forms of common algorithms that were being applied across different design agendas and cultures. One can argue that this sense activated certain reactionary positions in architecture, which then tried to reclaim the essence of design culture – positions later identified as the post-digital. As critical recognition of such positions, the post-digital attitude can be understood in two different ways. One way frames the post-digital as a negative dialectic reaction by simply replacing the digital with an architectural culture independent from technology – an eclecticism that, interestingly, aims to construct a visual, critical synthesis out of a collage of cultural projects and techniques, and thereby reactivates a problematic post-modernism. The other way, frames the post-digital as an attempt to establish design authorship at higher levels of representation – an attempt that sought to engage with a deeper understanding of computation and to avoid visual historicism. This attempt was based on earlier efforts to recognize, and critique, the spread of computation as the emergence of a new renaissance1.By now, it is crucial to establish a retroactive and, simultaneously, a continuously expanding project for computation; we must critique both its wide spread structuralism and its cultural simplification. One cannot separate technology from culture, since revolutionary architecture necessarily involves critical integration and innovation at both levels. As part of this scenario, the cultural role of the architect necessarily changes: contemporary architects will engage with the coding of reality, expand design authorship to computational systems, and become more relevant in the development of new technologies. They will take uncomfortable leads, as architects so notably did during the Renaissance with perspective, by developing an architecture of architectures, and by expanding design authorship to the conditions and parameters that explicitly reference architecture. In other words, architects will confront the emerging definition of the architecture of information." Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa

EXCERPT: ..."Computation has been understood in this context as a top-down means of structuring of reality, where technology is seen as opposite to cultural values. However, new technologies are capable to propose new lenses to understand reality, sometimes transforming the disciplines and even the cultural values behind them. The relationship between computation and architecture has gone through multiple phases, but lately architects have simply been working with the latest representational and fabrication technologies, exploring their ranges of possibilities instead of thinking them as proto-architectural".  Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa on "Site-Specific Adaptable Robotic 3d Printer and e-Chaise Longue", e(eiroa) - Architects, Design Principal, R/D: Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Designers, R/D: Gabriel Munnich, Yaoyi Fan, Pablo Toubes-Rieger, Nelson Montas.
 

 

2019 Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa peer review publication "Data and Politics of Information: Rezoning New York City through Big Data" Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Associate Professor NYIT in: Data, Architecture and the Experience of Place, Edited by Anastasia Karandinou​, Routledge, London 2019.

ABSTRACT: In the neoliberal model of urban development, policy makers have displaced architects and urbanists in planning and designing cities, or at least, one could argue, architects and urbanists have been removed from key decisions. In many cases, the implicit claim is that the market decides the form of the city. Architects have been criticised for designing cities from top-down structuring visions, apparently proposing autonomous, unrealistic ideas. But the result of this process perhaps escapes the personal agendas of policy makers, who often end up following autonomous managerial real-estate parameters, which by default arrive at defining land ownership rights, zoning regulations, parks, infrastructure, transportation, the city fabric, the city block, and predominant building typologies. Moreover, financial parameters ended up defining urban uses without addressing architecture and urbanism as a field of study and disregarding previous revolutions in urbanism such as health, public space, and the integral relationship of cities with the environment. While this neoliberal ideology pressures public space, parks, and the environment, turning them into commodities, it seems that a clear, politically urban position today would be to activate and expand urban voids and promote latent ecologies. These issues are discussed through an academic-studio research that aims to understand the contemporary city as a topologically continuous space-environment, proposing transformations of the overall structure of New York City by specific accumulative interventions, gathering, processing, and transforming Big Data including fluid-dynamic information.

2019-01  Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa new peer review publication: "Multidimensional Space: From Perspective to Big Data", Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Associate Professor NYIT, in: The Influence of Representation and Ideation Tools in Architecture, Editors: Marcos, Carlos L. (Ed.)​, Springer 2019. https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319937489 The publication was part of my presentation as invited lecturer at the conference:
https://web.ua.es/en/ega2018/keynote-speakers.html

The essay "From Perspective to Big Data" is included and indexed in the conference proceedings via Springer.  The EGA Journal has been recognized by the ANECA (National Agency of Quality and Accreditation) as an impact journal, evaluable in the concession of the research periods (CNEAI) and the different university teaching accreditations in Spain, as its articles are included in the international databases such as the Avery Index to Architectural Periodicals -Columbia University, Arts and Humanitis Citation Index -Current Contents, W.O.S., the Architectural Publications Index -RIBA, , Hollis Catalog (Harvard University) or the Barton Catalog (MIT). Keynote Speakers include Peter Eisenman, Alberto Campo Baeza, Gernot Riether, and invited lecturers include Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Liss C Werner, Angel Garcia Codoner and Jose Franco Toboado.

ABSTRACT: Architecture has historically led spatial representation. The question is why architecture does not have an active role in the contemporary investigations over conceptions and developments on multidimensional spaces. Computation has established new representational paradigms that can be compared to the revolution of perspective in the Renaissance. But architects have now limited authorship in the current digital revolution that is transforming systems of representation that they work with every day. The essay is based on latent problems of multidimensional spatial projection from the development of linear perspective in the Renaissance to the complexity of multidimensional representation in the Baroque. The essay explores higher dimensional space in computer representation by displacing conventional spatial projection methods, from perspective, to topology, to big data processing.

The exhibition project will present to the public the first site-specific adaptable 3d printer, designed by the team. This 3d printer does not depend on an external structure for operations, like a spider it can be adapted to existing large-space conditions, such as building walls, party walls, and other pre-existing conditions thanks to its unique adaptable tensegrity structure that tensions a robotic parallel cable-driven mechanism stabilized by an extensible arm. This unique design is flexible to a variable amount of conditions allowing a larger printable volume, since it can be adapted to exterior conditions, can be increased in scale to larger site-specific conditions, including the future possibility of construction of a house or a larger party wall building. It can also be adapted to depend on a structure if conditions are not met, such as in the construction of a tower structure or an isolated object, giving more flexibility to the system and its designs.

2017-03 Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa's Groundscraper exhibition is currently up at The School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, at the Dean's Wall. This exhibition is part of a fund raising initiative by Dean Nader Tehrani to support the free tuition policy at The Cooper Union. The exhibition of this project is carried out to represent some of the ideas developed at  ARCH 177/482B course lead by Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa where students develop the means and conditions to represent, draw and build their own projects. From coding, to fabrication, the Groundscraper exhibition project is phased through several means of actualizing the conditions that the project activates: from diagrams that activate the coding implemented to create the informed field reacting to the existing topography of the site; to a digitally fabricated series of model-drawings-inscriptions that activate the spatial qualities and logic of the project. The drawing exhibited progressively becomes a physical model, by expanding dimensionally the topography of the project activating the figuration of the project, tensioning the canvas-frame of the exhibition.

The technology implemented (CNC milling machine) to work out the model-drawings-inscriptions was developed by Pablo Lorenzo Eiroa (from Las Grutas Project for Uruguay) with the assistance of students at The Cooper Union: Gabriel Munnich and Yaoyi Fan and from research carroed on from ARCH 177-482 computer course lead by Prof. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa "Machines to Draw and Build".  For more information on these themes: Groundscraper Project East Uruguay; Arch 177-482B; machines to draw and build

2016 November Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa's exhibits Osaka Umeda District Competition after a peer review competition submission in Bugaik International Architecture Exhibition, Korea. Exhibition curators include Professors Inhee Lee. Exhibition November 2016. e-Architects' Osaka Competition Submission for the Umeda District in Osaka Japan proposes a double building topology to cross relate ground surface and skyline. Ground and skyline displace and critique each other composing different architecture opportunities. The project develops underground functions such as cultural centers and commercial retail, but the void of the original site is kept almost intact, keeping the city fabric at the street level and developing a green public park. The Osaka Competition was submitted in 2013 after wining a portfolio competition invited by Kengo Kuma and Jusuke Obuchi.

2016 08 REVISTA PLOT 06 Detalles Constructivos. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa's article :"Expanding Authorship Between Drawing and Building" published in PLOT 06 Detalles Constructivos, ed. Florencia Medina, August 2016. This article discusses theoretical and experimental issues featuring professional work from Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa at e-Architects | eiroa Architects and academic research developed at The Cooper Union. The article intends to deconstruct the relative authorship of architects designs when using software programs, interfaces, conventional algorithms and common information processing techniques, this time applied to recursive machines to draw and build, such as recursive CNC machines, 3d printers and Robotic Arms. The articles historically discusses the evolution of these issues in regards to materiality intending to expand dimensions between drawing and building, redefining these disciplinary categories.

Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa publico en Revista PLOT el articulo: "La expansion del concepto de autoria entre el dibujo y la construccion", Revista PLOT, ed. Florencia Medina, Agosto 2016. En este artículo se describen problemas teóricos y experimentales del trabajo profesional en e -Architects | Eiroa architects del autor y  de su investigación académica desarrollada en The Cooper Union. El artículo tiene la intención de deconstruir la autoría relativa que los arquitectos tienen en sus diseños cuando utilizan programas de software, interfaces, algoritmos convencionales y tecnicas de procesamiento de la información comunes, pero esta vez aplicado a máquinas recursivas para dibujar y construir, tales como máquinas de control numérico o CNC, impresoras  3d y brazos robóticos. En este artículo se analiza la evolución histórica de estas cuestiones en lo que respecta a la materialidad, expandiendo dimensiones entre dibujo y construccion, redefiniendo estas categorias disciplinares.

2016 08 REVISTA PLOT 06 Detalles Constructivos:  "On the Abstraction of Information and the Physical Tectonic of Materials" interview to Nader Tehrani by Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Aaron Sprecher and Shai Yeshayahi originally published in English in the ACADIA 2010 Conference Proceedings, translated to Spanish by the request of PLOT. This interview discusses interesting problems on the way Nader Tehrani works both using the implicit material forces in the materials he uses to inform his installations, but also works resisting the logic of these materials used by both layering intrinsic and extrinsic information.
