Digital Fabrication and Hybrid Interface: Lessons in Agriculture

GPS, GIS and satellite surveillance assist in cultivating hyperculture

Two vitally important fields of work in architecture and computing – in digital fabrication methods and in the development of interfaces between digital and analog systems – can find new forms in their combination with one another. Moreover, a recent such experiment in the production of landscape rather than building not only suggests a number […]


Hyperculture

Monoculture, Polyculture, Permaculture, Hyperculture A first step away from monoculture is the move to polyculture; and then onwards to the broader permaculture (a contraction of both “permanent agriculture” and “permanent culture”). Hyperculture goes further, as it captures the unity of agriculture and the information interface. Satellite information networks today drive the creation of landscape. But […]
