In the span of architecture folklore, this origin story is old hat: I wanted to become an architect because it combines art and science. As pithy as it sounds, this always struck me as problematic, because it presumes that such a combination is easily wrought. What is really going on, at the arguably-genetic root of architectural practice, that manages the push and pull between expression and empiricism? Architecture occupies that limbo space between the quantifiable and the phenomenological, and that gap is insistently being narrowed by technology &ndash; not only in design, but in how we actually perceive our surroundings.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/104803779/aftershock-3-brains-and-the-city AfterShock #3: Brains and the City Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-07-24T10:30:00-04:00 >2014-07-28T18:36:47-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/j6/j6pdgvke18am89pv.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Navel-gazing has become a data-driven sport. We are awash in technology that allows us to track our own activities, and then take responsibility for that scrutiny, holding us accountable for calories consumed or credit cards exhausted. The quantified-self movement can be a sandstorm of uselessness, or it can sublimate into constructive action. If we try to focus our navel-gaze to better understand ourselves, it seems imminent that such scrutiny will next focus on the brain.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/87376636/aftershock-2-serendipity-machines-and-the-future-of-workplace-design Aftershock #2: "Serendipity Machines" and the Future of Workplace Design Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-11-27T17:59:00-05:00 >2014-01-26T23:25:23-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/lv/lv04qs1u2c6fqs3w.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p><a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/330501/aftershock" target="_blank"><strong>AfterShock </strong></a>is a non-conclusive series that grapples with the impact and responsibility of contemporary architectural design, hoping to instigate dialogues on how to make architecture more accountable.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/81071956/aftershock-1-architectural-consumers-in-the-experience-economy AfterShock #1: Architectural Consumers in the Experience Economy Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2013-09-11T11:53:00-04:00 >2013-09-17T22:43:37-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2c/2cqg5h18b0vt8yq7.jpg" width="514" height="303" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p> <strong>AfterShock</strong> is a non-conclusive series on Archinect that grapples with the impact and responsibility of contemporary architectural design, hoping to instigate dialogues on how to make architecture more accountable.</p>
