Digital Translation and Entropy

EA-CR is a design research forum focused on the creation of built environments that explore the intersection of emergent technological, ecological and cultural impetuses. Set against a non-correlationist ideology, the practice explores the potential for hybrid synthetic ecologies that productively dissolve the boundary between human and non-human systems in architecture.

Our protocols engage non-human systems such as physical phenomena as productive devices for design by employing non-linear procedures that integrate material, chemical or biological behaviour with digital media, simulation and fabrication. Designs and machine instructions are not defined exclusively by formal Euclidean geometry but also by procedural methodologies and time based phenomena.
