London-based architect Gilles Retsin’s work proposes that a digital form of assembly, based on parts, contains the greatest promise for a complex, open-ended, adaptable architecture. This approach capitalises on the digital economy and automation, with the potential of the digital to democratise production and increase access. This lecture, taking place at SCI-Arc, suggests that the digital not only has deep consequences for how we design and produce architecture, but also that it is first and foremost a new system of production with economic, social and political consequences that need to be understood – such as the global housing crisis and the impact of accelerated automation on labour.
