Exaptive Design

“We will propose an alternative model for architectural practice, one where materials precede ideas, ecologies are given priority over intents, and creativity is understood as partial, distributed and collaborative.” Simone Ferracina.

This lecture was a contribution to the design course, Architectural Design 3: Explorations; Course Organiser, Dr Simone Ferracina with Dr Moa Carlsson, University of Edinburgh.
