TEXTING ARCHITECTS

Q6 TIME IS ?



We are texting with 100 prominent architects – sending them SMSes. The architects are out of context, so are their sentences. They are replying, but at the same time, they are unaware of the action. If they have something to say, they will write back. Consistency is in the spectrum.

TIME IS ?

Extending architectural analysis software to the urban scale fails because of the problems of building precise geometric models, and the difficulties of processing, as the time is likely to depend on the square of the number of geometric elements.

By borrowing techniques from image processing, we have been able to develop a range of promising algorithms, whose processing time is independent of geometric complexity, and relates linearly to the area under investigation. 1.1 Relation to previous work The use of image processing for urban analysis was proposed by Richens (1997), who implemented a number of simple algorithms using the public domain Macintosh software NIH Image (available on the Internet at http://rsb.info.nih.gov/nih image/).

This idea of an architecture in which time is built into form as memory has been a persistent theme throughout its history, but it was Sigfried Giedion in both Mechanization Takes Command (1948) and Space, Time, and Architecture (1941)

Another model of indexical time is associated with Colin Rowe and his disciples.

Retinal Architecture and Loss of Plasticity The architecture of our time is turning into the retinal art of the eye.

our time is characterised as the time of oblivion, because it tends not to be even interiorised 70 is passion missing?

We do many material tests, but for formal design models not so much because usually the design time is very short, very fast.

Flexibility and adaptability over time is important, as is the aesthetic appreciation by society (beauty).

The interesting thing about time is that we don't really know what it is.

Arriving at a solution in a short time is fine.

Although the building itself may not be so old, every place has an atmosphere where time is certainly an important factor.

This detail, which at the same time is a technical solution, defined the architecture of what you could call geometrical correction.

Management of cost and time is an important priority to us which has resulted in delivering award winning projects challenged by demanding budgets and schedules.

Due perhaps to the nature of its preparation in a shared vessel, what has remained constant throughout time is the communal aspect of punch drinking.
