Open lecture: Isaïe Bloch – Crafted Computation

On March 2nd at 6 pm, the Open Lecture Series of the architecture faculty will be happy to present Belgian architect and designer Isaïe Bloch at Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Pikk 20, Tallinn). Bloch is the founder of Eragatory which is a creative company with a focus on design for 3D printing and Creative fabrication. Bloch explores the impact of digital craftsmanship on a large range of disciplines including architecture, plastic arts, fashion and design. Open Lectures are open to all architecture and design students, professionals and general audience intrigued by spatial and design matters: the lectures are in English and free of charge.

Eragatory aims to produce work that embodies crafted digital eclecticism through an engagement with both new digital design processes and the the oldest of manufacturing techniques and vice versa. The work of the practice has been published internationally in Karl Lagerfeld’s and Carine Roitfeld’s “The Little Black Jacket” and Lucy Johnston’s “Digital handmade : craftsmanship in the new Industrial Revolution” (Thames and Hudson, 2015). Bloch has also been exhibited widely, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art New York, the FRAC Centre Orleans, SHOWcabinet London and at the Experimental Architecture Biennial Prague, and is simultaneously lecturing Architectural design at the Bartlett UCL and UEL in London.
