The work of Jorge Orozco presents a fresh and capacious view on architecture and ‘the digital’. It distances itself from established positions on the interplay between the two by cultivating the delicate balances that exist between Human and Artificial Intelligence.

The work seems to revolve around a long-lasting question: how do we articulate something that is not there by looking at everything that is there? It thrives with online observations –derived from millions of images, movies, texts– and mimics the techniques deployed by Google and Facebook in its handling of them.

Jorge's work is a rich and fantastic spectrum that takes consistent positions within what he calls ‘The Plenty.’ Here is a short selection of his work:

˛ Tens of exercises in bringing architecture space & A.I. into adequate proportions.

˛ A workshop to code personal instruments for movies that are curious about architecture.

˛ Non-generic search engines to navigate millions of images, movies, and texts.

˛ A talk on The Plenty–A sea foam for the engendering of architecture.

˛ Koolhaas, A.I., Google, Serres : a PhD dissertation on Indexical Architecture.

˛ A course on coding the conditions for Mr. Robot and Swiss-Architects to chatter.

˛ Talking architecture over the internet without intermediaries, a text.

˛ Vasily and Rodrigo, two architects telling stories of the everyday for the 12th International Architecture Biennale of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

˛ ABBA meets Rachmaninoff and Lady Gaga, a melody for the German Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia 2020.
