About this product
- DescriptionAddresses issues through essays, research projects, and built work by distinguished writers such as Mark Wigley, Mark Wasuita, Peder Anker, Sim van der Rym, Anthony Vidler, and practitioners including Francois Roche, David Turnbull, Mitch Joacquim, Jeanne Gang, and other emerging practitioners and scholars. In search of a resurging ecological consciousness, this issue of Architectural Design illustrates that the blurring boundaries between science fiction and the social reality of tomorrow.
- Author BiographyLydia Kallipoliti is a practising architect and a writer, currently teaching as an assistant professor adjunct at the Cooper Union school of architecture in New York. She holds a Diploma in Architecture and Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in Greece, a SMArchS from MIT and an MA from Princeton University, and is completing her PhD at Princeton on recycling material experiments and the intersection of cybernetic and ecological theories in the postwar period. Her design work has received awards in several international architectural competitions, and has been exhibited at venues including the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the Biennial Miami+ Beach, the Venice Biennale, the Byzantine Museum of Athens, the Biennale of Young Greek Architects, the 5th National Exhibition of Greek Architectural Work and the 'Non-Standard Praxis' digital design conference. Her theoretical work has been published widely in Log, Thresholds, 306090, ArcPlus, Pidgin, Future Anterior, The Cornell Journal of Architecture and Routledge's Urbanism Reader, and presented in lectures internationally. She is the recipient of awards including the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, the Lawrence Anderson award for the creative documentation of architectural history, the High Meadows Sustainability Fund, the Marvin E Goody award for excellence in the creative use of materials and a Fulbright scholarship. This issue of AD is part of a larger research project that Kallipoliti designed and curated. EcoRedux' is also an exhibition installation which was hosted at the Byzantine Museum of Athens, at Columbia University and at the Cooper Union in New York, and is forthcoming with 1/1 prototype installations at the Design Hub of Barcelona in March 2011. EcoRedux' is accompanied by an online non-profit educational resource for ecological experiments in the 1960s and 1970s and their potential creative reuse in contemporary design culture (www.ecoredux.com). The website received an honour at the 14th International Webby Awards of 2010. As an open-source database, EcoRedux online has a dual function: first, to explore the history of the period in assembling a genealogical archive and second, to reuse the archive as a generative device for design. Given the open-source nature of the project, architects and designers are able to actively participate in the expansion of the website by submitting for upload their own interpretations of ecological experiments that are documented in the archive. EcoRedux is an expanding, growing resource: a wikipedia for designers to expand their knowledge and trigger new ecological projects. Special thanks to Laura Serejo Genes for her invaluable organisation assistance in editing this issue.
