Borrow, Hack and Ship: Making Smarter Architecture

This panel discussion will offer three methods by which architects might realize a critical evolution of architectural practice. The methods discussed will include (1) the hybridization of borrowed tools and intelligence from other industries in the production of low-cost housing and community work, (2) the incorporation of newly hacked toolsets that reveal potentials for alternative means of design and production, and (3) the leveraging of manufacturing tools to expand commonly held modes of architectural practice. Rather than advocate a single approach, the session will clearly convey the lessons learned from years of experimentation with each, so as to better understand and advocate for a range of potentials and new, more intelligent, forms of architectural practice.
