Starting with the individual, and the automata, we offer a complementary scale of complexity to design: complicity. As a young practice, our projects show a theoretical framework, as meta-architecture towards the Real.
Daniel Koehler is an Architect, Urbanist, Researcher and Teacher based in London. At the UCL Bartlett School of Architecture Daniel leads a Research Cluster in Urban Design and is the Coordinator of the Theory and History Module of the Postgraduate B-Pro Urban Design Program. Furthermore, he is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Innsbruck, and is the co-founder of the Lab for Environmental Design Strategies. He has taught at several institutions, including the Sci-Arc, Städelschule, Aalto University, Vilnius Academy of Arts and the University of East London. He graduated from the Angewandte in Vienna and holds a Ph.D. in Urban Design from the University of Innsbruck. Daniel is the author of the book: "The mereological City", a study on the modes of part-to-whole relations between architecture and its city during modernism. Complementary to theory, he writes open source software packages, like "punktiert" and "bRigid", interfaces enabling digital forms of discrete compositions, based on his experience in teaching. His recent research investigates on the physical implications of digital logistics: cities designed by pure quantities, data and its architecture.
