Building as Function

year: 2012 / at: GSD / studio: Architecture 2.0 /

This project sought to explore the question "how could buildings act as computational functions?" Two iconic Montreal expo projects, Buckminster Fuller's geodesic dome and Moshe Safdie's Habitat 67, are re-imagined as functions of each other. Their basic organizational strategies are swapped and used as input into the other building.

Previous experiments in the studio analyzed existing projects, objects, and performances through a computational ("functional") framework.
