Archaeology of the Digital

Archaeology of the Digital

LOCATION: Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, 2013, Yale University, New Haven, 2014
CLIENT: Canadian Centre for Architecture

First exhibited at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA), Archaelogy of the Digital delves into the genesis and establishment of digital tools for design conceptualization, visualization and production at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s. Curated by architect Greg Lynn, the exhibition along with the related publication are conceived as object-based investigations of four pivotal projects that established distinct directions in architecture’s use of digital tools: the Lewis Residence by Frank Gehry (1985–1995), Peter Eisenman‘s Frankfurt Biozentrum (1987), Shoei Yoh‘s roof structures for Odawara Gymnasium (1991) and Galaxy Toyama Gymnasium (1992), and Chuck Hoberman‘s Expanding Sphere (1992).
