Sean Keller's latest book, "Automatic Architecture: Motivating Form after Modernism" examines the enthusiasm for autonomic design methods in the 1960s and 1970s. By focusing on design methods and examining evidence at a range of scale--from institutions to individual buildings--Keller offers an alternative narrative of postwar architecture, as well as an analysis of the contemporary condition, suggesting future paths for architectural practice that work beyond the merely automatic.

Sean Keller is associate professor at the IIT College of Architecture. He is a trustee of the Graham Foundation and a fellow at the Neubauer Collegium at the University of Chicago.
