The Social Algorithms as Evolution course from Architectural Association comprises two units with independent briefs, methods, seminars, and specific workshops for each perspective, and lecture series will accompany them to develop the theme of AAVS Seoul.


The last ten years of “AAVS Seoul” as the theme of “Social Algorithms” oscillated between site-driven research, which unveils Seoul as an actual city, and computational design experiments under the diverse algorithmic processes. 

During this Social Algorithms as Evolution course, Architectural Association is trying to do a little step up based on accumulated experiences, titled as one theme, “Evolution,” explaining life’s diversity and exquisiteness by differentiated survival and breeding in ‘Nature selection.’ 

Humans have evolved with adaptations and variations through social rituals, systems, and machines, and architecture has been a crucial role in this process as an essential part of social systems.
