The Transarchitecture. Confluences of the Architecture and the Contemporary Arts Instalations

Abstract:

The Media Lab events and instalations, components of contemporary cultural landscape, are the referent of renewing. The novelty of relation with the architecture doesn`t imply much more than artistical aspect. Architects with interests in computer-science or new-media & contemporary arts are concerned by the overteking of the mimesis. In rememberance of the modernist past, are we capable to answer to a paradigmatic question: in which form is associated the new aesthetic of architecture? The Transarchitecture, as personification of the present trends, bundle a well-definned domain of experiments. There are related with the interfaces human - computer - phisical space, in a sythesis of organic ambient intelligence, achievable with the present background data. Few questions about related domain can be already lay down: connected with the present socio-economic changes, can we identfy a new interest in these fields? Are these parts of a new architectural aesthetic? In the affirmaive case, which are the specific forms? On this pages, some hipothesis will be taking in to shape.
