Talk Series vol 1: Edouard Cabay. Machinic Protocols
Sept 18 at 5 pm Talk Series vol 1 is taking place at the brand new Estonian Academy of Arts Architecture Department [Room: A405].
The topic of the lecture is Machinic Protocols, led by an architect Edouard Cabay from architecture office APPAREIL.
APPAREIL is the recent winner of the competition for a new wooden pavilion for architecture and design in Tallinn with the title ‘‘Cutting Horizon‘‘.
About the lecture:
The work of Machinic Protocols addresses the limits and potentials of generative drawing, emerging from data through mathematical and mechanical operations; raising questions on automation, reproducibility, and the role of the arbitrary or accidents as sources of creative experimentation.
Edouard Cabay Bio:
Edouard Cabay is the director and founder of Appareil, an architecture office in Barcelona. In parallel, he runs several investigation projects at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia in Barcelona and directs the AA Barcelona Visiting School.
He directs Machinic Protocols, a research project that develops an experimental design methodology that explores the relationship between order, randomness and chance in drawing and design. He also co-directs the IAAC's Open Thesis Fabrication program which currently develops architectural solution with km 0 robotic additive manufacturing means.
Edouard has taught at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris and at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Has ran construction workshops in Iran, Mexico, Switzerland, Spain and Italy. His experimental practice in drawing has been exhibited in art museums, architecture biennales all over Europe [including in Tallinn Architecture Biennial 2017].
