New digital perspectives in design and architecture
The impact of digital in design and architecture
A substantial evolution of digital tools accompanying design approaches and construction practices for design and architecture is producing today great transformations. Both the concept of morphogenesis and that of fabrication are the subject of interesting experiments. One of the first aspects that emerge from contemporary research seems to indicate a rapprochement of knowledge, practices and skills that will probably produce in the future the birth of a hybrid professional figure and for some aspects already known from the history of the disciplines covered. A figure that we could indicate as an artisan in its ability to be a synthesis of aspects related to the interactions between matter-form-function-aesthetics, through a work aimed at the sustainability of our living and made possible by the critical use of new technologies. Perhaps it is not by chance that the idea of a new European Bauhaus, launched by Ursula Von Der Leyen, finds a profound correspondence in the capacity of the digital to be a contemporary instrument of connection and investigation.
