Product description

Today's explosive developments in digital technology have also affected architecture and the urban landscape. This volume provides a profound introduction to the important role of digital simulation in design and execution. In four chapters, the author systematically examines the influence of digital culture on architecture but also on the urban landscape as well as product design. The relationship of digital architecture to the city is also an important focus.

Review quote

"This book is one of the first accounts of the current dereliction of traditional design caused by the severe and profound influence of digital culture. . . . It is filled with fascinating accounts of blobs, nurbs, catastrophes, perfomativity, parametricism, anamorphoses, deformational morphologies, topological singularities, genetic-inspired algorithmics, and biomachinic mutations--among other things." --Choice
