Cybernetics is “a discipline which flls the bill insofar as the abstract concepts of cybernetics can be interpreted in architectural terms (and where appropriate, identifed with real architectural systems), to form a theory (architectural cybernetics, the cybernetic theory of architecture).”
Gordon Pask, 1969
