  • 1. BODIES &BUILDINGSNYU ITP LECTURE COURSE SPRING 2013APRIL 15, 2013JEN VAN DER MEER @JENVANDERMEER WWW.JENVANDERMEER.COM
  • 2. ASSIGNMENT Concept source and exploration? What part of the system of how we care for bodies, or how wemake and maintain our buildings, interests you the most? What are the anomalies and failures that irk you?What possibilities do you see?April 15, 2013 2  
  • 3. PLACES TO INTERVENE IN A SYSTEM: 12. Constants, parameters, numbers (subsidies, taxes, standards)11. The sizes of buffers and other stabilizing stocks, relative to their flows10. The structure of material stocks and flows (transport networks, population age structures)9. Length of delays, relative to the rate of system change8. The strength of negative feedback loops, relative to the impacts they are trying to correct against7. The gain around driving positive feedback loops6. The structure of information flows (who does and does not have access to what kinds of information)5. The rules of the system (such as incentives, punishments, constraints)4. The power to add, change, evolve, or self-organize system structure3. The goals of the system2. The mindset or paradigm out of which the system – its goals, power structure, rules, its culture-arises1. The power to transcend paradigmsApril 15, 2013 3  
  • 4. 1. The power to transcend paradigmsKeep oneself unattached in the arena ofparadigms. -D. Meadows. April 15, 2013 4  
  • 5. No paradigm is “true” Every one, including the one that sweetly shapes yourworldview, is a tremendously limited understandingof an immense and amazing universe that is farbeyond human comprehension. It is to “get” at a gutlevel the paradigm that there are paradigms, and tosee that that itself is a paradigm, and to regard thatwhole realization as devastatingly funny. April 15, 2013 5  
  • 6. The basis for radical empowerment If no paradigm is right, you can choose whatever onewill help you to achieve your purpose, you can listento the universe and do his, her, its will, which isprobably a lot better informed than you will. April 15, 2013 6

  • 18. GENERATIVE DESIGNGenerative design is not about designing a building,it’s about designing the system that designs abuilding.Using modeling and to see what works. 18  April 15, 2013
  • 19. “VIRTUAL BUILDING” a concept in which all design, construction, environmentalperformance, and operational problems are visualised, solved,and optimised using integrated computer simulation. -The Arup Journal 2/2008 19  April 15, 2013
  • 20. Modeled energy vs. measured energy 20  April 15, 2013
  • 21. “VIRTUAL BUILDING” The virtual building is intended to support stakeholders throughout the project’slifetime in the following areas: Exploration: a constantly evolving tool for exploring new directions in design andconstruction Communication: enabling project teams to quickly and accurately communicate designforms, functions, and behaviours to other team members and the broader collectionof stakeholders Integration: providing an environment where design and facility team members canshare and co-ordinate project information quickly and efficiently Optimisation: facilitating analysis tools that are capable of optimising performance,sustainability, and costs to meet both short-term and long-term goals. 21  April 15, 2013
