Collecting Autographs

BY PETER EXLEY
@ AIA 2014 CONVENTION ON JUN 26, 2014

Parents are nostalgic for stuff they did as kids and wish that today's children shared the same passions.  Of course, kids today are on to cooler things.  As a child, Peter Exley collected autographs from entertainers, athletes and other celebrities.  In adulthood, he's a little more focused, and nudges famous architects to sign books, napkins and drawings.  He observes that kids today don't have autograph books anymore.

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design

BY DAVID BENJAMIN
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 18, 2015

David Benjamin is Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life — literally. David expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.

Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.

 This was "Presentation of the Day" on May 29th, 2017.
