On October 18 and 19, Adam Marcus presented two peer-reviewed research papers at the 2018 Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) conference “Recalibration: On Imprecision and Infidelity,” hosted by Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City. Recalibration challenges architects to achieve a new level of understanding of the inherent infidelities of the systems in which we operate by embracing that imprecision rather than trying to impose a means to control it.
On the first day of the conference, Marcus presented “Buoyant Ecologies Float Lab: Optimized Upside-Benthos for Sea Level Rise Adaptation,” a paper co-written with the team of collaborators behind the interdisciplinary Float Lab project. The Float Lab was also featured in the conference’s peer-reviewed exhibition of projects.
On the second day, he co-presented “Drawing Codes: Experimental Protocols of Architectural Representation” with Andrew Kudless. The paper discusses the theoretical basis of the Drawing Codes exhibition project.
