From experimental epistemology to experimental architecture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A life-long beacon for Lebbeus Woods was his understanding of the ideas of second-order cybernetics and attempts to assimilate them into his architectural projects. An introduction to this discourse was provided in Urbana-Champaign in the early 1960s by his most important intellectual mentor, cyberneticist Heinz von Foerster. Poised at the intersection of architecture and cybernetics, Ben Sweeting charts some of the lines of their interactions and friendship.
