Hi, Restless Spirits!
We will gather again for the book discussion series this month. We will discuss about The Autopoiesis Of Architecture that written by Patrick Schumaker in 2009.
Architecture is born as a summary of human understandings of their surrounding world. This comprehension is of course particular for each person/group, hence they require the correct media to bridge the diversities of ideas. One of them is through a form of architectural communication.

Patrick Schumaker then study this communication system in his theory: Autopoiesis of Architecture (2009). It is quite a new theory and has not yet had a concrete design application. However, these ideas he offers, may be solutions of current architectural miscommunication; specifically in the face of slum existence in big cities.

Materiality turns to be a form of direct communication, clearly visible shape of an architectural work. Through autopoiesis approach, materiality might be an effective language to solve spatial complications, commonly happen between urbanities. As a case of this discussion, we will discuss revitalizing movements in kampongs in several cities, starting from Kali Code in Yogyakarta to Kampung Pelangi in Malang.

The session will be presented by Rio Sanjaya and Gregorius Jasson. — If you are interest to join this session, please fill this form below:
