Log 36
Guest edited by architect Greg Lynn, Log 36: ROBOLOG explores the challenges and potentials posed to architecture by the rapidly accelerating field of robotics. Tossing aside the usual fabrication-focused discourse around robots, the 23 contributors to ROBOLOG investigate topics ranging from hyperrealistic robotic drag queens to machine vision to buildings that move. In addition to a collection of thought-provoking essays, this issue includes conversations with Elizabeth Diller, Nicholas de Monchaux and Ken Goldberg, and Chuck Hoberman. Rather than providing easy answers or touting cutting-edge technologies, ROBOLOG offers provocations to both architects and theorists. Robotic sensors, actuators, and networks have fundamentally transformed the world around us. What will architecture choose to do with them?

A Question of Qualities
Jeffrey Kipnis's writing, thinking, and teaching casts architecture as both an intellectual discourse and a lived, affective experience. His essays on contemporary architects are less about making critical judgments than about explication, exegesis, and provocation. In these eleven essays, written between 1990 and 2008, he considers projects, concepts, and buildings by some of the most recognized architects working today, with special attention to the productions of affect. He explores intuition in the work of Morphosis, exhilaration in Coop Himmelb(l)au, freedom in the work of Rem Koolhaas and OMA, magic in Steven Holls buildings, and anxiety in Rafael Moneos writing about contemporary architecture.
