Example text

25 For Patrik Schumacher, partner and in-­house theorist at Zaha Hadid Architects, this tendency has congealed into a style, Parametricism: Parametricism is a mature style. There has been talk about “continuous differentiation,” versioning, iteration and mass customization etc.  . 26 The question of Parametricism’s “hegemony” has been a subject of lively debate among architects, who disagree over whether its design language—­which is based on the scripting of variable systems through digital algorithms—­may be considered a style whose signature aspects would be an undulating topographical 24 after art field composed of modular geometric elements, or whether the digital modeling capacities that Parametricism relies on should remain tools for designing a more materially based and responsive form of architecture.

These methods are centripetal because they are directed inward to the object as their organizing principle, even when ostensibly concerned with external phenomena like “context” or future effects. But by tethering things to meanings, such analysis participates in the very p o p u l at i o n s 45 processes of reification that the progressive wing of art history has devoted itself to critiquing. Assigning a meaning is merely another way of setting an artwork’s price in the currency of knowledge, transforming it into a certain kind of commodity for collectors to buy and for museums to “sell” to their audiences.

30 As is often the case with buildings rendered as platforms, architectural form is both derived from circulation patterns and aimed at regulating their velocity. Hand in hand with this emphasis on platforms is the widespread reinvention of buildings as a differential field. While hardly the only architects to deploy such a rhetoric (this preference is evident in numerous prominent contemporary practices), the firm of Reiser + Umemoto are among the most eloquent in defining an architectural field characterized by differential intensities.
