Synergetic Regionalism by William Alfredo Villalobos Fernàndez is a theoretical endeavor for a site in the south of Venezuela (in the “La Gran Sabana” area) near the border with Brazil.

Synergetic Regionalism establishes a syncretic relationship between emergent occidental architectural models and existing indigenous organizational strategies in an attempt to move beyond the highly romanticized views of indigenous societies as expressive of organizational systems and tectonics that are exclusively vernacular. This relationship generates and intensifies programmatic performance, but also instigate cultural and architectural juxtapositions by the hyper interpretation of natural systems and anthropogenic conditions. It also looks into the promotion of generative architectural systems in order to empower consistently disregarded indigenous communities through immediate access to telecommunications and exposure to global interaction with the proposal of a satellite operation center. The resulting system is derived from the reactions against the forces that act upon it. The way in which matter is procedurally applied along the surface depending on a number of parameters related to the surface geometry, its program, and external site conditions.

    This project is a perfect example of how to waste everyone’s time. It’s just a bunch of fancy (and actually not that great) renders and a paragraph of obsfucation.

    Is this an objective approach to creating architecture by the use of ‘generative’ computer modelling ?

    Is it a rejection of romanticised vernacular in favor of western (post colonial) aesthetics ?

    William, instead of trying to impress us with your ability to string together a bunch of words, why don’t you tell us exactly what you are trying to achieve. I think in the end it’s a glorified internet cafe for a bunch of indigenous folk. Am I right ?
