In Architectural Intelligence, Molly Wright Steenson explores the work of four architects in the 1960s and 1970s who incorporated elements of interactivity into their work. Christopher Alexander, Richard Saul Wurman, Cedric Price, and Nicholas Negroponte and the MIT Architecture Machine Group all incorporated technologies - including cybernetics and artificial intelligence - into their work and influenced digital design practices from the late 1980s to the present day. Steenson investigates how these architects pushed the boundaries of architecture - and how their technological experiments pushed the boundaries of technology. What did computational, cybernetic, and artificial intelligence researchers have to gain by engaging with architects and architectural problems? And what was this new space that emerged within these collaborations?
Molly Wright Steenson is Associate Professor in the School of Design and head of the Doctor of Design Program at Carnegie Mellon University.
