Hello world! I am Theodora, a PhD Candidate in Design and Computation at the MIT Department of Architecture.In response to the SpainLab “Innovation in Architecture” provocation I will inquire into the implications of the evangelistic tautology of democratization and innovation, which is re-emerging in the “Open Source Architecture” rhetoric. The goal of my intervention is to stimulate a discussion around the role of computation and information technology in engendering new programmatic agendas in architectural design, “opening” it to the general public and to problematize the conceptual biases of the platforms supporting the participatory techno-utopias of today.
