Infra Eco Logi Urbanism

August 25 — November 20, 2014

This exhibition assembles recent urban research and speculative design work by the research-based architectural practice RVTR. It undertakes a study of the Great Lakes Megaregion through geographic, statistical, and cartographic analysis and proposes a rethinking of infrastructural systems in light of new mobility, renewable energy, and urban growth. Set within this context of transformation, the exhibition projects possible urban and architectural futures that envision new public domains.

“Infra Eco Logi Urbanism” was organized as a traveling exhibition by RVTS of Ann Arbor Michigan and Toronto Ontario and is supported by the Social Science and Humanties Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning, the University of Michigan Office of Research, Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan, and The MI Group.

Archeology of the Digital:
Media and Machines

December 8, 2014 — May 1, 2015

This exhibition curated by Greg Lynn, marks the second phase of the research project by the Canadian Centre for Architecture initiated with the 2013 exhibition Archaeology for the Digital. Featuring work by Asymptote, Karl Chu, Bernard Cache, dECOi Architects, ONL, and NOX, the exhibition continues to examine architecture’s engagement with digital technologies from the 1990s to the early 2000s. The six projects presented range from the design of buildings to the design of interactive media, interactive robotic mechanisms, drafting machines based on the Catastrophe theory, generative algorithms, and the writing of disciplinary and cultural theories

“Archaeology of the Digital Media and Machines” was orgainzed by the Canadian Centre for Achitecture. Montreal, Canada, who greatfully acknowledge the generous support of the Canadian Ministere de la Culture et des Communications, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts de Montreal, the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, and Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown.
