Federico Ruberto is part (virtually) of the “Deep City”, a symposium organised by EPFL Lausanne. He presents a short paper titled “Function Collapse : : Abducting Futures” where he outlines a constructive ontology of “models” (describing briefly models of contingency in natural and formal language), the practical necessity of designing at multiple scales through a…
