Georg Vrachliotis: Fritz Haller and the Microchip: Architecture, Society and Technological Unrest

Tue, 9/18 · 5:00 pm7:00 pm · Room N107, School of Architecture

Georg Vrachliotis, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

M+M Program in Media and Modernity

Swiss Architect Fritz Haller, friend and colleague of Konrad Wachsmann, not only tried to develop construction systems but to also geometrically and conceptually arrange their spatial and temporal properties; working simultaneously on the synchronization of language systems—a remarkable conceptual link that also allowed Haller to interpret the city as a construction system.

Haller’s investigations were nothing less than one of the most enigmatic and perhaps last attempts in the 20th century to create an outline for new forms of perception about infrastructural space and landscape and to transfer that which is technically invisible into a geometric form.

Respondent: Anna-Maria Meister (Doctoral student, Architecture)
