Our practice is based on the idea that information is currently the contemporary driving ingredient for a progressive and NEW architecture.
Information derived from new knowledge, new materials and new technologies has resulted in a shift in Architectural Thinking.
The above mentioned topics of Complexity, Process, Information and Potential each describe in short some the notions involved in contemporary architecture.
Evolutionary Architecture -
We have attempted to shift emphasis from the conceptual to the material, towards tangible effects and spatial values. We aim to emphasise the experience, to use 'concept' as a tool for generating variation, difference and a range of spatial and material values instead of as an end in itself. We describe our methodology as evolutionary, in that we envisage many variations. Instead of serving specific requirements, our project attempts to generate ranges of qualities, in which particular qualities will be embedded more or less automatically within a whole matrix. Similar to a biological system's strategy for producing a spectrum of offspring instead of focusing all hope and energy on the production of a single specific, type. We produce a range of possibilities, some of which will prove to be redundant, others which we hope will have the strength to survive.
