Digital Tectonics, Technologies and Processes of the Advanced Computational Design and Production in Architecture
During the last decades, we have seen the Computer Aided Design (CAD) system impact on conceptual design process in architecture especially in the area of 3D modelling and visualization. In addition there is a paradigm shift that using CAD system becomes more possible to develop the process of architecture as generative design, various 3D simulations and building information management (BIM) of it. Recent emergence of advanced computation software has been produced to deal with geometrically free forms. Many digital conceived projects are characterized by this fascination of the free-form geometry and its fabrication. In the essays subjected to digital tectonics, each contributor from five architect firms (Foster + Partners, RMJM, Hopkins Architects, Populous, and Aedas) and three engineer firms (Arup, Adams Kara Taylor, and Expedition Engineering) in UK focus on writing of the recent their development of advanced computation programs for enhancing the practice of architecture and engineer to respond the various tasks such as generative design, structural and environmental performance simulation, fabrication and construction of architecture.

Gateway of Heritage - Interpretation Center

Gateway of Heritage
Interpretation centers are empty buildings. Or in other words, they contain something that cannot be appreciated at first glance ‑ something that requires time and curiosity to be understood. In this un-immediateness of visible content lies the main role of interpretation centers. They house that immaterial substance that might be referred to as local knowledge. They contain nothing but a résumé of what surrounds them. They exist in relation to the importance of a given context. Moreover, their importance (or their needfulness) comes to light only after people have become aware of the interest of a certain place. The reason for interpretation centers is then in a way subject to a locale or a local history. Furthermore, as they are always born a posteriori with respect to the place, they will never create a new place.
