The IT Revolution in Architecture
Thoughts on a Paradigm Shift
Questo libro può essere scaricato e letto in iBooks su Mac o dispositivi iOS.
Information technology is imposing itself as the central paradigm for a new phase in all of architecture; the dynamic interconnections at the heart of IT are being transferred from the world of digital models to the reality of a reactive, sensitive, interactive architecture. The structure chosen for this book was to avoid a "crib sheet" on the "IT Revolution in Architecture." The formula of the "treatise" was just as impossible to use not only because many aspects of contemporary scientific research are oriented toward a structure that remains intentionally open and serves to launch new hypotheses rather than solidify certainties, but also because this aspect is reinforced by the material that by its nature finds itself in an free, interconnected, intrinsically problematic dimension.
Indispensable tool for architects
The first text that outlines a compelling and comprehensive theoretical framework of the "information technology revolution in architecture". From an operational definition of information, to explain how the information itself is the raw material for a new architecture, dynamic, interconnected and interactive. Indispensable tool for contemporary architects.
