Bios:

Co-founder of New-Territories. Through those different structures, their architectural works and protocols seek to articulate the real and/or fictional, the geographic situations and narrative structures that can transform them. Architectural designs and processes have been show at, among other places, ICA, Mori Art Museum, Centre Pompidou, MAM, Tate Modern, ArchiLab, at the Venice Architecture Biennales, French pavilion in 90, 96, 2000, and International Section in 2000-04-08-10… for the last two, in 2012 (Dark Side, Slovenian Pav., Writing Architecture), and in 2014 in Bembo Pavillion.

F. Roche was guest professor among others at GSAPP-Columbia (10 years), Bartlett London, TU Vienna, ESARQ Barcelona (3 years), UPENN Philadelphia (3 years), Angewangde Vienna, actually at RMIT Melbourne (since 4 years) and Michigan Ann-Arbor. Though new-territories, he will present their actual works-scenario-movies and contingences at the first Biennale of Chicago and as Key Lecturer for next Acadia Cincinnati, October 2015. F. Roche was the guest editor of NYc LOG#25, for the # “reclaim resis(lience)stance”.

Abstract:

As an history of multiple-psycho-disorders, consequences of the multiplicity of contingencies and incoherencies, nonsenses, constructing hazardous causalities and consequences, including Computing, Robotic and Bio-Chemistry … through ‘Bachelor Machines’ palpitating between Eros-Thanatos drive, as desirable machines in the pursuit of Antonin Artaud and Gilles Deleuze … as line of subjectivities and technological protocols able to redefine apparatus of transaction, where Species, Animism and Machinism could re-negotiate their contact-contract.
