Summary:
"Today's explosive developments in digital architecture have affected architecture and the urban landscape. Computer-aided design and digital simulation have led to new forms as well as to an increasingly strategic approach to architecture and urban development. From the preliminary sketch all the way to the production of building components, digital tools offer new possibilities that were still inconceivable just a  Read more...
