Detail Online Magazine – Codes in the clouds


” The architectural research studio, “Codes in the Clouds”, was formed at the Dessau International Architecture Graduate School, by the German architect, teacher and academic, Liss C. Werner.

She has exhibited the studio’s work at the 13th Venice Biennale in 2012 and, as a visiting professor, taken it on tour to the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh in 2012–13.

Here is some of the studio’s exciting recent work as seen through her own, and her student’s projects in both Germany and the USA.

Uncovering the potential of computational design, and the use of cybernetics in architecture, Werner aims to reveal the sublime and philosophical in the conceptual, formal and tectonic qualities of her work, particularly where the work is further developed into architectural prototypes as emergent, rule-based organisms.

Codes in the Clouds has been exhibited and published at ‘DigitalFutures’, at Tongji University in Shanghai and the 13th Venice Biennale 2012 in the Slovenian pavilion. Liss Werner is the editor of the forthcoming book ‘[En]Coding Architecture – the Book’, following the international conference she chaired of the same name.
