What role can architects play in this seemingly-inevitable technical evolution, with their knowledge and sensitivity to the relationship between the body and space?

The progress of thought, progress of conversations and progress of objection. Architecture is not a search for truth, but instead, as a discipline, it is a collection of studies, inquiries, and expertise into an expanding field of knowledge. The discipline of Architecture is one that grows, progresses, and builds upon itself just as its buildings build upon eras of decades past. And yet, the voices of yesterday have been anxiously overcompensating for their diminishing relevance, fading into mere echoes by fearfully retreating to the false comfort of a broken record discipline&mdash;one where progress is stifled and treated as insolent. The suppression&nbsp;of progress has not gone unnoticed and as the imposed stagnancy solidifies, conversations&nbsp;turn against those imposing it, demanding a return to the discipline of Architecture.&nbsp;</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150078812/soapbox-christo-and-jeanne-claude Soapbox: Christo and Jeanne-Claude Anthony Morey 2018-08-22T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-09-01T14:16:03-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/b5/b52f6b7d91facb135e9c350886b7d689.gif" border="0" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/1045325/soapbox" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Soapbox</a>&nbsp;is a weekly series delivering a curated set of lectures, talks and symposia concerning contemporary themes but explored through the archives of lectures past and present.

According to a <a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-05/report-las-vegas-draws-more-millennial-first-time-visitors" target="_blank">recent report</a>, gambling time now totals 1.9 hours during an entire stay in Vegas, an hour less than in 2015 and over two hours less than twenty years ago. This change is being driven almost entirely by the younger generation who are spending just 8.5 percent of their income on gambling compared to the <a href="http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/business/content/docs/LIGHT/Millenial%20Entertainment%20Preferences%20-%20FINAL%20REPORT.pdf" target="_blank">23.5% spent by their parents</a>. The American entertainment industry has therefore made it a top priority to grab, and keep, the attention of the millennial market.</p> <p>What does a less gambling-centric future mean for cities like Las Vegas? This month&rsquo;s feature takes you on a virtual tour of The Strip to investigate a selection of new experience-driven, &lsquo;Instagram-ready&rsquo; architecture projects commissioned by the top entertainment conglomerates. I check in with Stefan Al, architect and associate professor of Urban Design at the <a href="https://archinect.com/penndesign" target="_blank">University of Pennsylvania</a> and author of &lsquo;<a href="http://www.stefanal.com/the-strip" target="_blank">The Strip: Las Veg...</a></p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150062492/a-5-part-video-series-on-the-architecture-of-artificial-intelligence A 5-Part Video Series on "The Architecture of Artificial Intelligence" Archinect 2018-05-08T11:20:00-04:00 >2018-11-18T10:46:03-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/bh/bhy4e0vje1hxb6wt.gif" border="0" /><p>The Architecture of Artificial Intelligence is a 5-part video series, produced for Archinect by <a href="http://otisharley.com" target="_blank">Otis Harley</a>, exploring how artificial intelligence (AI) is changing architecture, design and the construction industry.

These positions within the academic realm produce a fantastic blend of practice, research and design influence and traditionally within a tight time frame. Fellow Fellows sits down with these fellows and attempts to understand what these positions offer to both themselves and the discipline at large.&nbsp;<em>Fellow Fellows</em>&nbsp;is about bringing attention and inquiry to an otherwise maddening pace of refreshed academics while giving a broad view of the exceptional and breakthrough work being done in-between the newly minted graduate and the licensed associate.&nbsp;</p> <p>This week we talk to <a href="https://archinect.com/schools/gallery/150001760/0/syracuse-architecture-awards-2017-2018-boghosian-fellowship-to-linda-zhang" target="_blank">Linda Zhang</a> who is&nbsp;currently the 2017-2018 <a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/993762/harry-der-boghosian-fellowship" target="_blank">Harry der Boghosian Fellowship</a> at <a href="https://archinect.com/syracuse" target="_blank">Syracuse University School of Architecture</a>.&nbsp;</p>
