Advocating for the empowering potential of new technologies and hybrid identities as a means of breaking traditional hegemonic practices, Donna Haraway argues “the machine is us, our processes, an aspect of our embodiment. We can be responsible for machines, they do not dominate or threaten us. We are responsible for boundaries; we are they."

This panel seeks to debate the value of alternative ways in which technology could be learned, accessed, and deployed as a means to expand the impact of our discipline. Looking at progressive methods of engaging technology as it interfaces with social and behavioral sciences, performance, environmental sciences, engineering, criticism, public art, construction and craft, encourages a reformulation in the ways that architecture is practiced. How might the misuse, hacking, retooling and reappropriation of various technologies lead to operating outside of traditional boundaries of architecture by making room for diverse interests and broadening the relevance of the discipline?"
