Global Mini-Series: That Lightbulb Moment - Architecture as Information
architecture, lecture, Sam Jacob, design, information, material transmission
Marshal McLuhan told us that a light bulb is information, but that we don’t recognize it as such because it is information in its purest state. If that’s the case for a very small part of architecture, then perhaps it’s also true for the whole. But what might that mean?
The talk will think through this idea using a series of projects as jumping-off points – from early FAT works that imagined architecture as a form of communication to more recent projects exploring the material transmission of information through architecture.
