2013.11.22: Patrik Schumacher himself posts twice within an Archinect news item.
I'd like to see a same scale comparison of Le Corbusier's Plan Voisin and ZHA's Kartal Pendik Masterplan.

Parametric smackdown: Patrik Schumacher and Reinhold Martin debate at CalArts conference
Regarding Kartal Pendik Masterplan:
The result is an elegant, coherently differentiated city-scape that facilitates navigation through its lawful constitution and through the architectural accentuation of both global and local field properties.
This much might be possible to institute with the imposition of strict planning guidelines using strict building lines and height regulations. Strong political support and private buy-in are required to make it happen. All constituencies need to be convinced that the restrictions placed upon all sites really deliver a worthwhile collective value that cannot be achieved otherwise. Here the collective value is the unique character and coherent order of the urban field. All players benefit from this if adherence can be enforced. Ordered complexity here replaces both the monotony of Fordist, planned developments and the disorienting visual chaos that marks virtually all laissez-faire city expansion.
Patrik Schumacher, The Autopoiesis of Architecture: A New Agenda for Architecture (2012), vol. 2, p. 692.


same difference?
"Hold me, thrill me, kiss me! Now enforce me!" All for the collective value, of course.
Still thinking/wondering:
Is parametricism really only valuable if it's strictly enforced? There seems to be a weird irony there then, if that's the case.
Also, has the monotony really been replaced? (Hence, "same difference?")

Parametric smackdown: Patrik Schumacher and Reinhold Martin debate at CalArts conference
From the Schumacher quote: "Here the collective value is the unique character and coherent order of the urban field. All players benefit from this if adherence can be enforced."
And the irony seems to come with the notion that Parametrics deals with and draws conclusions from many variables, yet, once the design is set, there is then (a prescribed enforcement of) no more dealing with variables,
...what an imagination! I can see a whole new future architecture: the Le Corbusier Unplugged Style. Look out, Villa Savoye!

Don't make waves, or they might just pull the plug?
Don't make plugs, or they might just iron out the waves?
Irony makes waves, feel the pull?
Jung Zaha House, 2007.08.10:

Precursor to the Le Corbusier Unlugged Style?
The least I can do now is combine the two databases. There goes the neighborhood.
