Typological Formations: Renewable Building Types and the City

"This collection of student projects from the AA's Diploma Unit 6 encapsulates a generational shift. After the past decade of deep (and sometimes, it would appear, deeply self-satisfied) explorations into new digital and computational design tools, "Typological Formations" demarcates a return to the city as the overt site, not just for architecture but for architectural thinking. A quick glance through this book will confirm the obvious: sophisticated parametric tools are all over these projects, but they are no longer a topic or focus in and of themselves.Instead, such tools are merely brought to bear on the design agenda: the search for 'renewable' building types that are able to negotiate the rapidly changing circumstances of cities in an era of global capitalism. [...] With this book, the idea of an architectural 'type' seems more supple - that is, more differentiated and therefore more relevant and productive - than ever. "Typological Formations" is nothing less than a manifesto for a return to projects and project-based forms of architectural knowledge today."

Animate Form by Greg Lynn (PDF)

"While motion implies movement and action, animation implies the evolution of a form and its shaping forces: it suggests animalism, animism, growth, actuation, vitality and virtuality. [...] What makes animation so problematic for architects is that they have maintained an ethics of statics in their discipline. Because of its dedication to permanence, architecture is one of the last modes of thought based on the inert. [...] Challenging these assumptions by introducting architecture to models of organization that are not inert will not threaten the essence of the discipline, but will advance it." - Greg Lynn
