This evening we had the pleasure of partaking in the Lecture on behalf of Neil Leach, as part of the IAAC Fall Lecture Series 2013. During the Lecture entitled Adaptation a series of topics were touched around the following concepts: within contemporary architecture design a significant shift in emphasis can be detected – a move away from an architecture based primarily on visual concerns towards an architecture justified by its performance. Structural, constructional, economic, environmental and other parameters – concerns that were once relegated to a secondary level – have now become primary, and are embraced as positive inputs into the design process from outset. Architecture – it would seem – is now preoccupied less with style and appearance, and increasingly with material processes and performance. It is as though a new architectural design sensibility has emerged.
