Decoding the human genome and genetically modifying plants and animals present new challenges for artists, architects and
designers: the borders between subject and object, between organic and inorganic material as well as artistic and virtual
existence become increasingly fluid. The Gen(h)ome Project deals with paradigm shifts in artistic responses to
science, above all biology and genetics.
Participants includeGreg Lynn/FORM, Karl Chu, Servo, Marcos Novak, ocean D, Weathers-Sean Lally, Phillippe Rahm, Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau,
and Open Source Architecture.

percept in California. After completion of his own Kings Road house in 1921/22 designed as live-work space, Schindler primary
planned and built private residencies, like the Mackey Apartments and the Fitzpatrick-Leland House.
