Control. Code. Construct. will serve as a platform to initiate a discussion and debate with the notion of control at its centre. We wish to explore the different dimensions of control for designers, architects and engineers — from controlling material, form and code to controlling processes and start-ups.
Control. Code. Construct. explores the relationship between the adequacy of code, computation and the machine —computer, robot, drone etc.— and tacit knowledge, the type of knowledge that craftsmen or makers hold, accumulated through years of experience and which is hard to transfer into verbal communication, let alone code. Where does the boundary lie between implicit and explicit knowledge, in terms of architecture, construction and design? This question can be also transferred to other domains such as big data, artificial intelligence and smartness — where does computational decision making stop and where does human, soft decision making begin?
Control. Code. Construct. addresses these complexities of making by describing, advancing and ultimately interrogating technical realities in relation to formulated strategies related to material, geometry, structure, data, evaluation, simulation and the used machines.
