Exuberance: New Virtuosity in Contemporary Architecture by Edited by Marjan Colletti

This title of AD heralds a new era of exuberance in digital design.Having overcome the alienation and otherness of the cyber, havingmastered the virtual qualities and protocols of the parametric,having achieved the intricacy and elegance of the digital, andhaving fully embraced the potential of 3d computer software andcad/cam manufacturing technologies, it is now time for architectsto show off! Conjure up the extravagance of furniture design, the abundanceof cgi in Hollywood, the profuseness of bio-techno ornamentation orthe lavishness of Middle-Eastern and Asian super-urbanism.Exuberance not only celebrates new Baroque theatricality, formalsophistication and digital virtuosity; it also debates a plethoraof joyful and intelligent ways in which experimental architecturemanages to cope with the contemporary turmoil in global politics,economics and ecology.

About Edited by Marjan Colletti


Dr Marjan Colletti is co-founder of the studio marcosandmarjan in London, and currently a lecturer in architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London (Unit Master, Unit 20), and the University of Westminster (Unit Master, DS10) with Marcos Cruz. He has been a guest professor at ucla and Innsbruck University, Austria and design instructor at various institutions in Europe and Asia. His projects and texts attempt to bridge the gap between architectural theory and the built environment by expanding the vocabulary of digital architecture. On various platforms - research, education and practice - he endeavours to establish a debate in which experimentation, technology and innovation do not exclude personal emotions, local traditions and cultural identity. His work has been widely published and shown in more than 50 exhibitions in Europe, Brazil and Asia. marcosandmarjan's portfolio includes the competition-winning entry for a 180,000-square-metre (1.9 million-square-foot) entertainment complex in front of the gates of the Summer Palace in Beijing, the built pavilions and general layout for the 2005 Lisbon Book Fair, as well as the ongoing nurbsters series and the runner-up project for an estate Sales Centre and model homes display in Cairo. Marjan's phd on 'Digital Poetics' (Bartlett, ucl), the co-authored book marcosandmarjan: Interfaces/Intrafaces (SpringerWienNewYork, 2005) and the print collection 2&1/2D Twoandahalf Dimensionality (Bucher Hohenems, 2006) favour a poetic digital avant-garde developed through 2-D, 3-D software and computer numerically controlled (cnc), rapid protoyping (rp), and computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (cad/cam) technologies. Parallel strands of research are developing novel morphologies (Convoluted Tectonics), new urban strategies (InterPolis), higher education syllaba in digital design, computation and technology (ac-dc Architectural Curriculum for Design Computing), as well as sustainable manufacturing strategies (InterTech). 1
