IUSD Lecture #3 / The Form Imperative / Prof. Dr. Nirmal Kishnani, National University of Singapore

Form in architecture is discussed typically as a question of function, tectonics, or style. A systems approach to form making, however, is less concerned with the production of objects and more with relationships. Here, form is seen as an underlying configurational structure that favours certain connections and flows over others. This lecture will examine the agency of form in architecture and urbanism, how this becomes critical where the goal is to reconnect human-made and natural systems.
