Today’s presentation by brett is the last of this term’s ‘Post-digital’ open seminar series by Mark Cousins and Brett Steele. Today’s topic focused upon the 20th century’s genealogy of ‘pre-digital’ architectures; projects from Mies and Lecorbusier to Utzon, Team X and others that establish a legacy of distributed, parametric, iterative or serial projects whose sensibilities and working methods anticipate more recent topics in contemporary ‘digital’ architectural practise.
