Systemic Architecture: cybernetic diagrams

My design method and practice, which I call Systemic Architecture, has been defined in the years by the attempt to render the spatial and material dimension latent in the immaterial relationships underpinning all living systems; life, organic and inorganic, can be understood as a dense network of interlocking feedback loops of exchange of Information, Matter and Energy.
The theory of second order cybernetics provides a framework to describe such complexity and the result has been a series of "cybernetic diagrams" describing the systemic nature of my design portfolio.
This perspective unveils a deeper layer of agency that involves collapsing the boundaries between territorial ecologies, architectural devices and spatial practices.
