The future of Software is our Future


Architecture as mediation

The future of Software is our Future


Architecture as mediation
Architecture is mediated by technology, what is good and bad about it?

Architecture is a mediated practice that exist at a distance from its final object. This mediation takes place increasingly within a digital workspace. Such means are never neutral, they impact the built. Architecture is as must shaped by the hardware and software as by the design process. As the software’s become more complex are architects bound to lose control and become the ones being controlled. If we can understand in which ways, the software comes with preloaded solutions and methods that reflect directly on architecture we can create a space of liberty within a digital workspace. This aims to be a way to face an architectural method of production that seems to need every day less the architect and more the programmer, more so with the rise of AI. This is not an anti-technological stance rather it seeks to understand what takes place underneath the triviality of the day to day architectonic design.


Pz pz pz design my house in paint. Do we really need more than straight lines to draw architecture? What can experience as these teach us about your conventional way of working. Using software and hardware always follows a circle it is design based on what needs to be automatized, after that it automatizes what we design. One way of questioning this cycle it to invert it’s use, to question it in order to understand what is pre load way of operating and what shadow does it cast on arhcitecture.

Pz pz pz I wanna be offline. What can you without a computer? How dependent are you of technology? How far can you take a project without any software. we provide the brief you send us the result
