LECTURE: MATIAS DEL CAMPO
Lecture: Moody Objects
Speaker: Matias del Campo, Associate Professor of Architecture, Taubman College of Architecture, University of Michigan
July 7, 2015 (Tuesday)
Matias del Campo explores in his lecture “Moody Objects” the lineages of ontographic qualities in recent computational design techniques. It brokers between the quality of permutations of objects as design trajectory, and the non- physical entities that constitute primary realities between sensual (moody) and real objects.
Chilean born and Austrian native, Matias del Campo graduated with distinction from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. In 2003 he co-founded SPAN Architects in Vienna, together with Sandra Manninger. The globally acting practice is best known for their sophisticated application of contemporary technologies in architectural production. Their award winning architectural designs are informed by Baroque geometries, romantic atmospheres, and biological systems. Matias del Campo ́s obsessive explorations of contemporary moods are fueled by the opulent repertoire of materialization in nature in combination with cutting edge technologies, as well as form as a driving force in design at large. Apart of his role as head of design at SPAN Architects Matias del Campo serves as Associate Professor of Architecture at Taubman College School of Architecture, University of Michigan
