The Digital Sublime II

Can something beautiful be designed by digital code? That was the main topic of the symposium at Technical University Berlin (TU Berlin), for which we designed this poster back in 2013. We had to ask our friend, the talented Julian Koschwitz, for help — he programmed this in a mysterious language called "processing". The poster proved to be very successful: When it was hung at the faculty of Architecture, it was stolen — three times.

«It is curious but true that the emotional power of projects that stem from computational design grows all the more overwhelming to the extent that the process that underlies them remains mysterious. They are charged with a strange tension: they adhere to a strict algorithmic logic, but are also characterised by its veiling or dissimulation. Zaha Hadid's Museum at Michigan State University, Jürgen Mayer H's Metropol Parasol in Seville, or the experimental architectures of Achim Menges or Gramazio & Kohler would seem to have been shaped by invisible, magical forces. It's time to ask ourselves if the era of digital intelligence has effected the return of a nearly-forgotten aesthetic category: the Sublime, now as the Digital Sublime. Le Corbusier, like Ètienne-Louis Boullèe, speaks of reaching the Sublime by way of «concreteness and factuality». What does that mean for parametrical project formulation and computational design? What's to be understood when we speak of «the digital sublime»? What perspectives does it open for architecture?»

The poster is printed in the original format 70 x 100 cm (27.5 x 39.4 in) and in the smaller format 50 x 70 cm (19.6 x 27.5 in) using on-demand digital inkjet technology for vibrant colours on matte paper. We tested the quality and are very happy with the colour reproduction.

The poster is shipped in a poster roll and comes without a frame. All photos show the Large (70 x 100 cm) version of the poster.

Design: Studio Mut, Thomas Kronbichler, with coding by Julian Koschwitz
