Sean Lally will discuss his recent book The Air from Other Planets: A Brief History of Architecture to Come (Lars Müller Publishers, 2013)—a speculation into an architecture produced by designing the energy within our environment (electromagnetic, thermodynamic, acoustic, and chemical). This architecture exchanges the walls and shells we have assumed to be the only type of attainable architecture for a range of material energies that develop shapes, aesthetics, organizational systems, and social experiences. In this world, energy emerges as more than the substance that simply fills the interior of a building or reflects off its outer walls. Instead, energy becomes its own enterprise for design innovation: it becomes the architecture itself.
