|<nettime-ann> AUDC NetLab Launched / Interview at BLDGBLOG (Modified by Geert Lovink)|
. AUDC announces the launch of the AUDC Network Architecture Lab at the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Preservation and Planning. The AUDC Network Architecture Lab is an experimental unit at Columbia University that embraces the studio and the seminar as venues for architectural analysis and speculation, exploring new forms of research through architecture, text, new media design, film production and environment design.
Specifically, the Network Architecture Lab investigates the impact of computation and communications on architecture and urbanism. What opportunities do programming, telematics, and new media offer architecture? How does the network city affect the building? Who is the subject and what is the object in a world of networked things and spaces? How do transformations in communications reflect and affect the broader socioeconomic milieu? The NetLab seeks to both document this emergent condition and to produce new sites of practice and innovative working methods for architecture in the twenty-first century. Using new media technologies, the lab aims to develop new interfaces to both physical and virtual space.
The NetLab is consciously understood as an interdisciplinary unit, establishing collaborative relationships with other centers both at Columbia and at other institutions.
The NetLab begins operations in September 2006.
More on the NetLab can be found at in BLDGBLOG, where Geoff Manaugh interviews AUDC Co-founder and NetLab Director Kazys Varnelis. See
