Marcos Novak

Marcos Novak is an architect, artist, composer, and theorist who employs algorithmic techniques to design actual, virtual and hybrid intelligent environments. The self-described transarchitect is seeking to expand the definition of architecture by including electronic space, and originated the concept of liquid architectures in cyberspace and the study of a dematerialized architecture for the new, virtual public domain, the immersive virtual worlds.

Novak is professor at the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA, he is the founding director of the
Laboratory for Immersive Virtual Environments and the Advanced Design Research Program at the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin, and a Fellow of the World Technology Network; and his (many) writings which combine architecture, music, art, computation, science, and/or technology include the seminal paper Liquid Architectures in Cyberspace (1991), transArchitecture: Against the Collapsing Radius of Fiction, and Transmitting Architecture: The transPhysical City (1996) - which became the theme of the XXIII World Congress of the UIA ((Union Internationale Des Architectes, 2008).

In 1998, Novak published Next Babylon: Accidents to Play In in V2_'s The Art of the Accident.
