The exhibition, which is curated by Greg Lynn, is the third and final exhibition of the &ldquo;Archaeology of the Digital&rdquo; series organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA). The series highlights 25 seminal projects while considering the preservation challenges posed by digital archives.</p><p>Unlike the first two exhibitions, &ldquo;Complexity and Convention&rdquo; looks at similarities, rather than distinctions, in the approaches of various projects. The exhibition is divided into five themes: high fidelity 3D, structure/cladding, data, photorealism, and topography/topology.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src=""></p><p>Projects featured in the exhibition include:</p><p><em>Erasmus Bridge (Rotterdam, The Netherlands; 1990-1996) by Van Berkel &amp; Bos Architects; Chemnitz Stadium (Chemnitz, Ge...</em></p> Greg Lynn: The future of glue in architecture is bright Alexander Walter 2016-03-14T13:41:00-04:00 >2016-12-23T23:15:57-05:00 <img srcset=" 1x, 2x, 3x" src="" border="0" title="" alt="" width="650" height="" /><em><p>Glue is the future of architecture. At least that&rsquo;s how architect Greg Lynn sees it. And he&rsquo;s not alone. &ldquo;Mechanical assembly is already waning in many industries,&rdquo; Lynn says. &ldquo;An airplane now is glued together. A car now is glued together. Even a lot of appliances are being glued together.&rdquo; So why not skyscrapers?</p></em><br /><br /><p>Related stories in the Archinect news:</p><ul><li><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Love Letter to Plywood.

Entirely housed within a 13,000sqft airplane hangar, the campus is used by architecture students in the university&rsquo;s <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">SUPRASTUDIO</a> program, a one-year MArch II that pairs students with industry and non-profit leaders to focus on an advanced research project. Since its first run in 2008, SUPRASTUDIO has tripled in size and offerings, now composed of 41 students working in studios led by Gehry Partners/Gehry Technologies, Greg Lynn, and Thom Mayne/The Now Institute.</p> <p> A far cry from the hilly green labyrinth of UCLA&rsquo;s Westwood campus, the IDEAS hangar formerly belonged to famed aviation magnate Howard Hughes, and now plays neighbor to Los Angeles&rsquo; YouTube Space (and nearby Google in Venice).
