Glitch Architectures is a research on the appropriation of the glitch aesthetic to architecture. The Glitch, an error or 'bug', created by the disruption of electronic data, is often exploited for its aesthetics and exposure of the host system. From its' very parasitic nature, the glitch is dependent on both the data and the generating algorithm of the system it disrupts. This project examines glitches in the context of geometry compression, in linear and polynomial models, on details and entire systems.
By developing alternative workflows for the disruption and intervention of Algorithms that generate 3D geometries, Glitch Architectures examines this appropriation on several iconic buildings. The Azrieli Tower Complex in Tel Aviv was chosen as the main research, but so were some classic examples such as Villa Savoye and Villa Rotonda.
// Glitch Architectures was created as a B.Arch thesis project instructed by Dr. Eran Neumann at Tel Aviv University.
