Philippe Block: Bricks Don’t Lie

A theme that was explored by various architects at the 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice was the exploration of finding inspiration from past precedents in architecture. Philippe Block recently came to Sydney to talk about this and his application of modern technology including parametric modelling. Throughout university I avoided all discourse surrounding parametrics because I felt that the agenda of many students was to develop an impressive image or aesthetic as opposed applying the process in a more meaningful context.
