Abstract

The project UniverCity poses one key question: How can a representation that determines each element with absolute precision represent a space which, according to some definitions, is intended to contain absolute uncertainty? This research project takes various forms: a (more-or-less) conventional academic paper, a series of blog posts about CGI renderings of new universities or university buildings, a series of visual elements, and a web forum. This project is conceived and produced in the understanding that it will function as an element of construction in both a real and an imaginary new university building. Each different form is intended as an experiment with the literal meaning of this idea. Each is intended to possess the potential to be architectural, maybe sculptural - something like a brick, a block, an I-beam – part of an existing or future structure, yet able to be reclaimed, recycled, or recombined in structures produced by others.
