Hyperbody presents the book launch of IA#4. Quantum Architecture
The scientific reading of natural systems and phenomena has recently been adopted as the main driving force for new development in architecture. Due to the study of flocks of birds, genetic coding, fractal geometry and neural networks, various abstract computational machines have been invented. They, have facilitated our ability to realize new kinds of spatial and material organization, and hence enriched our understanding of the inner logic of space and architecture.
The fourth issue of the iA bookzine presents quantum theory as a new stimulus for architecture debate. Quantum theory, as the most precise explanation of our physical world, has not only triggered a tremendous technical improvement, but has also introduced a revolutionary quantum world view that considers the material world as a non-deterministic construct, deciphered with probability and interactivity. From this point of view, true interaction can be envisioned between users and their constructed environments, and
between designers and their computational tools.
