Archaeology of the Digital is conceived as an investigation into the foundations of digital architecture at the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s through four seminal projects that established bold new directions for architectural research by experimenting with novel digital tools: the Lewis Residence by Frank Gehry (1985–1995), Peter Eisenman’s unrealized Biozentrum (1987), Chuck Hoberman’s Expanding Sphere (1992) and Shoei Yoh’s roof structures for Odawara (1991) and Galaxy Toyama (1992) Gymnasiums.
The exhibition is part of a multi-year research project launched by the CCA to investigate the development and use of computers in architecture, and the first step in the CCA’s strategic objective of creating a collection of digital architecture.
Curator: Greg Lynn, Los Angeles.
Graphic design: Jonathan Hares, Lausanne.
