Neoarch - Neoplasmatic Architecture covers the experimental work of Marcos Cruz, his distinct teaching activity and the work of marcosandmarjan. It investigates the impact of innovative technology on current design practices, in particular what concerns the advent of synthetic life in architecture. It looks at advances in new digital media and biotechnology within a design context that is increasingly more interdisciplinary, while simultaneously focusing on a new spatial, programmatic and linguistic dimension of architecture and the city.
Ultimately, Neoarch aims to discuss a future vision of the body in architecture by exploring ‘Flesh’ as a new concept that allows rethinking our common and more traditional understanding of architecture. Central is the investigation about our Human Flesh (the Body) and a new emerging Architectural Flesh; a broader discussion about Aesthetics of Flesh; along with a vision of a new Urban, Digital and Neo-Biological Flesh.
