Szervita Square Tower

ARCHIGRAM dominated the architectural avant garde in the 1960s and early 1970s with its playful, pop-inspired visions of a technocratic future after its formation in 1961 by a group of young London architects – Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb.
In the 50's, 60's and 70's appeared some theories and movements that afterwards inspired blobitecture as :
Buildings built or designed before computers were invented having blob-like architecture (organic lines, asymetrical shapes, geodesic domes)
Biosphere Montreal
Oscar Niemeyer's Copan Building

Friedrick Kiesler 1958

Antoni GAudi 1912
Importance of CAD programs in blobitecture

Mathematics role in blobitecture
is one of the most innovative architects working today.
Drawing much of his

, and
postmodern theory
Computers are a principal element in Greg Lynn's design process, which he believes can be used to
integrate calculus into the design
of new architectural forms.
Greg Lynn has created what is called Blob Architecture, which as he says, “The term is used to describe
binary large object modelling
Greg Lynn

The Embryological House
No direct social influence on Blobitcture form
A shift towards new materials
New design methods as 3d scanners, laser printers,..etc will affect this movement forms.

Completed 1999

Selfridges Building
The Bull Ring, Birmingham, England
Completed 2003
Norman Foster
British architect whose company maintains an international design practice
He was intrigued by design and engineering from a young age.
Foster worked with engineers to integrate complex computer systems with the most basic physical laws, such as convection. Green, sustainable energy ideas include the complex facade which lets in air for passive cooling and vents it as it warms and rises.
Foster's earlier designs reflected a sophisticated, machine-influenced high-tech vision. His style has evolved into a more sharp-edged modernity.
Was a world-renowned Czech architect
In 1979 Kaplický set up his own architectural think tank called Future Systems with David Nixon
He began to develop an architectural style that combined organic forms with high tech futurism.

Dr mohamed steit:

no blobitecture without computer
computer programs are used in structure facades & cladding of project.
even the factories have use the same
programs in fabrications.
the facade consists of segments each is prepared separatly.
After blobitecture (digital creativity in architecture)
