IN ARCHITECTURE BEAUTY MATTERS ANEW
Digital design continues to influence architectural discourse, not only due to changes in manufacturing but also through establishing meaning. The very term ‘post-digital’ was introduced by computational designers and artists, who accept that digital gains in architectural design are augmented by human judgement and cognitive intuition.
Architect Dr Yael Reisner combines architectural practice with research, teaching and curatorial work. A native of Tel Aviv, Reisner has a BSc in Biology but switched to architecture, finishing her studies at the Architectural Association, London, and gaining her PhD from RMIT, Melbourne. Reisner was guest editor of a complementary issue of Architectural Design, AD Sep.2019, published by Wiley, UK, entitled: Beauty Matters, Human Judgement and the pursuit of New Beauties in Post Digital Architecture.
Yael Reisner Studio is committed to research-led projects, increasingly focused on human wellbeing and the built environment, where the experience of beauty is the aspiration. Her public works include: Take My Hand, Rights and Weddings, an installation that explored human rights and wellbeing in Placa de La Merce, Barcelona (2014) produced by the Enric Miralles Foundation.
