“Glitches, Flash Crashes, and Very Bad Futurists”…


Last fall, Vincent deBritto and Ozayr Saloojee invited Rob Holmes to come visit their Resilient Infrastructures project at the University of Minnesota; his main contribution was to deliver the lecture above. The lecture examines a particular class of landscape problem, which he has provisionally described as “glitches and flash crashes”, argues that this kind of problem reveals a potentially (literally) disastrous flaw in the project of distributed design, and concludes by recommending that architects and landscape architects draw on the tools and methodologies of the discipline of futurism to become better futurists.
