CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Guest-edited by Neil Leach
What is the impact of digital technologies on the design and analysis of
cities? For the last 15 years, the profound impact of computer-aided techniques
on architecture has been well charted. From the use of standard drafting
packages to the more experimental use of generative design tools and parametric
modelling, digital technologies have come to play a major role in architectural
production. But how are they helping architects and designers to operate at the
urban scale? And how might they be changing the way in which we perceive and
understand our cities? Features some of the world’s leading experimental
practices, such as Zaha Hadid Architects, R&Sie(n), Biothing and Xefirotarch.
Takes in exciting emerging practices, such as moh architects, kokkugia and
THEVERYMANY, and work by students at some of the most progressive schools, such
as the AA, Dessau Institute of Architecture and RMIT. Contributors include:
Michael Batty, Benjamin Bratton, Alain Chiaradia, Manuel DeLanda, Vicente
Guallart and Peter Trummer.
