Noise Control: Designing with Entropic Processes
2013 (English)In: New Constellations / New Ecologies: Proceedings of the 101st Annual Meeting of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) / [ed] Ila Berman and Edward Mitchell, ACSA Press , 2013, 283-288 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Noise Control offers a specific approach to design where noise is understood as a productive rather than destructive force. This approach is distinct from others in architecture, where the noise produced by entropic processes is simply accepted as inevitable, or from those that celebrate the purely picturesque nature of matter in a state of decay. Noise Control draws from an eclectic collection of sources ranging from contemporary dis-courses on matter and digital design, to disciplinary history and neighboring disciplines. It argues that the distortion produced by noise can be productively associated with the precision of digital design in order to produce specificmaterialsensibilities.These sensibilities lean towards the strange, because of their pe-culiar pairing of immediate, sensory experiences of matter with a slower set of associations that rely on manipulation of vaguely familiar objects.
