Instabilities and Potentialities - Notes on the Nature of Knowledge in Digital Architecture

Author(s): Chandler Ahrens (Editor); Aaron Sprecher (Editor)

parametric / BIM | theory and history | Routledge

Now that information technologies are fully embedded into the design studio, Instabilities and Potentialitiesexplores our post-digital culture to better understand its impact on theoretical discourse and design processes in architecture. The role of digital technologies and its ever-increasing infusion of information into the design process entails three main shifts in the way we approach architecture: its movement from an abstracted mode of codification to the formation of its image, the emergence of the informed object as a statistical model rather than a fixed entity and the increasing porosity of the architectural discipline to other fields of knowledge. Instabilities and Potentialitiesaims to bridge theoretical and practical approaches in digital architecture.
