Starting with the individual, and the automaton, we offer a complementary scale of complexity to design: complicity.
Daniel Koehler is an architect, urbanist, researcher, and co-founder of lab-eds. He is an assistant professor for architecture computation in the School of Architecture at The University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Koehler teaches courses on architecture computation, urban form, city architecture, mereological thinking, and the design of distributive technologies at urban scale. Before joining UT Austin, Daniel directed one of the research clusters at the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture in London, where he also coordinated the theory module of the Urban Design Master Program. Furthermore, Daniel was a postdoctoral research fellow at Innsbruck University. He has taught at several institutions, among them the Aalto University in Espoo Finland, Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania, Städelschule in Frankfurt Germany, and the University of East London. Daniel has studied Architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, and he completed his PhD at Innsbruck University. His work has been exhibited in Prague, Milan, Graz, Montreal, London, and is part of the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou. He is the author of “The Mereological City”, a study on the part-relationships between architecture and its city in the modern period. His current research focuses on the urban implications of distributive technologies, which are being designed by means of sets, data, interfaces and their architecture.
