Neural Architecture Symposium and Exhibition

Do you want to know more about Architecture and Artificial Intelligence? About ways to use it as a design method? About the technology behind it? About the ethical and cultural implications? About Agency, Authorship, and Sensibility in this new design paradigm?

Two weeks to go for the launch of the Neural Architecture exhibition and symposium! The exhibition features works by Daniel Bolojan, Immanuel Koh, Kyle Steinfeld, SPAN (Matias del Campo & Sandra Manninger), Foster + Partner, Ryan Vincent Manning, Kory Bieg, Rasa Navasaityte, and AIAIAfrica.

Lev Manovich will deliver a keynote Lecture on November 2nd at 5pm, followed by the exhibition reception. 7:00pm to 9:00pm at the Taubman College Liberty Annex, 305 W Liberty St, Ann Arbor, MI 48103, United States. Followed the next day by the Symposium in the commons of Taubman College, 2000 Bonisteel Blvd, Ann Arbor, MI 48109. (9am to 5pm)

The Neural Architecture Exhibition at Taubman College presents itself as an opportunity to survey the emerging field of Architecture and Artificial Intelligence and to reflect on the implications of a world increasingly entangled in questions of the agency, culture, and ethics of AI. This rapidly developing field of architectural inquiry is ripe for rigorous interrogation. Almost daily, new practices emerge that focus on the incredible opportunities that an expanded human mind through AI offer for the discipline of architecture. The symposium oscillates between those poles of tension, in order to inform the public audience and the discipline, about the status quo and the vision of this paradigm-changing new ecology of design.

It is accompanied by a full-day symposium on November 3rd. Speakers include Phil Bernstein (Yale), Catherine Griffiths (Taubman College), Sophia Brückner (Stamps), Chad Jenkins (Michigan Robotics), Immanuel Koh (SUTD), Sandra Manninger (NYIT), Benjamin Ennemoser (T A&M), Matias del Campo (Taubman College) and Kyle Steinfeld (UC Berkeley)
