Architecture -- 2/15 Daypass -- Plausible Futures: Approaching Architecture and Urban Design from a Complex Systems Perspective
Geoffrey Thün is Associate Professor of Architecture and Associate Dean for Research and Creative Practice at UM’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He is a founding partner in the research-based practice RVTR. Thün holds an M.U.D. from the University of Toronto, and a Professional B.Arch. and B.E.S. from the University of Waterloo. He uses a complex systems approach in his work, which ranges in scale from high performance buildings, to cities and regional territories. Speaker’s Synopsis: Drawing from examples of Thün’s work, contemporary practice, and what he perceives as the frontiers of research in architecture and urban design, this talk will outline a manifesto for a future of design for the built environment based upon principles of ecological and complex systems.
