  • Fascinating essay by Kazys Varnelis, which takes as its jumping off point the potential discrepancy between designing for “hard” stuff (whether factories, industrial production, or …architecture/buildings) vs. designing for networked stuff and software and mobile technologies. After this initial set-up, Varnelis then quickly goes into describing some very specific site- and urban-intervention type projects that subvert the “hard” aspects of planning & building via software/ new technologies. The former points are not that difficult to address, using predictable interventions and affordances (see my notes/ annotations), but the latter are mind-blowing and difficult to contain within predictability.
