Contemporary architecture exists in a condition of software abstraction. From CAD to BIM, the building’s state is that of a pliable parameter space of structural possibilities.
Digital architectural renderings are the stuff of juries and prizes, designed to impress. Dotted with render ghosts sparsely populating impossibly gleaming structures, these immaculate design fictions suggest and promise, but above all they appeal to the imagination. They invent.
11 Fictions Are takes digital renders of contemporary architectural projects and further fictionalises them. An automated pointilism procedure is used to abstract the renders using algorithms prevalent in parametric design itself, closing the loop of fictions with a machinic reference to the human hand.
