# MANIFESTO /// Marcos Cruz


Marcos Cruz

NEOPLASMATIC DESIGN

The rapid development of innovative technological approaches in the realms of biology, microbiology, bio-technology, medicine and surgery are becoming of immense significance to architecture, demanding our attention due to their inevitable cultural, aesthetic and technical implications. Marcos Cruz investigates with students of Unit 20 at the Bartlett School of Architecture the impact of these emerging and progressive biological advances upon architectural and design practice. The unit has been looking at the current groundswell of experiments and creations that utilise digital design as a method to explore and manipulate actual biological material. A notion of design is emerging in which interdisciplinary work methodologies, traded between physicians, biologists and engineers, as well as artists and designers are increasingly occurring, giving rise to hybrid technologies, new materiality and hitherto unimaginable potentially living forms. The results of these conditions, defined as neoplasmatic, are partly designed object and partly living material. The line between the natural and the artificial is progressively blurred. More than derived from scaled-up analogies between biological conditions (cellular structures) and larger scale constructs (architecture), as commonly expressed in much contemporary bio-architectural work, Neoplasmatic Design implies ‘semi-living’ entities that require completely new definitions.

Marcus Cruz is definitely leading the vanguard in architecture. "Digital architecture experimentations" articulated with "biotechnology" has a huge conceptual density and a wonderful innovative energy. This century is known for being the biology century. How can architecture integrate it into its practice?

I'll never forget his lecture at Oporto, in Fantasporto Film Festival. Superb!

I suggest seeing these movies:
Barbarella
Blade Runner
Existenz
Matrix

salmon have their annual fall migration in mind as they return to rivers.
Thus, I tied the boots extra tight, made sure not to forget the odd bit of gear, the kind that would play well at a bar
or on the fly.
