Lars Spuybroek of Nox proposes to start his lecture
with a murder. In fact, he recites for fifteen minutes from an essay on technology, the body, machines, architecture as a medium, liquid architecture, and topological geometry. He discusses three projects. The 1997 Water Pavillion was built for the Dutch Ministry of Water Management. Another 1997 building called “Blow Out” housed toilet facilities, which Spuybroek discusses in terms of corridors, hollow buildings and labyrinths. The third project is a 140-meter high skyscraper, “Beach Hotel,” characterized as liquid architecture, topological geometry and architecture as a medium. During the discussion with the audience Spuybroek affirms his desire to create electronically changing environments with their own behaviors that interact with people.
