Digital technologies provide enticing opportunities to increase accessibility, maximize public standing, decrease costs, and preserve heritage in new, more affordable ways.
The field of architectural design, practice, fabrication and construction is increasingly becoming aided and dependent on digital technology. The proliferation of computers in design education and practice has resulted in a major paradigm shift and a reorientation in theoretical and conceptual assumptions considered to be central to traditional design education and practice.
Information technology has become ever more pervasive in architectural education and practice, and has revolutionised the way we design, practice, evaluate, teach and produce architecture. Digital technology has reconditioned the design process and how we operate as architects. The introduction of new computational tools to architectural design pushed the limits of conventional design models and methods. From inception to representation of designs, and from production to life-cycle management of buildings, architects had to develop exceptional approaches.
