|Architecture & Technology
“Technology is the answer ... but what was the question?” (Cedric Price, 1966)
The Greek term téchne, is a term which up until today in European philosophy, coined the notion of Art, Science, and Craft.
The histories of technology with all of its branches could be summed up as the history of inventions in form of tools and
techniques. Those are closely connected to other historical developments such as science, economics, and social agendas -
a history of the very human condition itself. Whether viewed through the topic of energy, information, productivity, machines,
or social development, today most of the world is accommodating a “technically civilized life” to some extent.
This SLIVER lecture series is gathering professionals to present versatile notions of technology and its impact on the discipline
of Art and Architecture. The invited lecturers will present their take on technology and reflect on the potentials which it
bears or what conventions it questions and how to approach those creatively/artistically.
