About this book


The book connects the ICT and the architectural worlds, analyzing modeling, materialization and data-driven visions for design issues at different scales. Furthermore, using sample modeling and materialization tools, it explores the links between performance-driven design approaches and the application of new digital technologies. Intended for architects and urbanists, it provides a theoretical framework to address the implications of the digital revolution in building design and operation. Furthermore, combining insights from IT and ICT with architectural and urban design know-how, it offers engineering professionals a technology-driven interpretation of the building design field.
