CAIRO BOOKS's Description
This title of AD heralds a new era of exuberance in digital design. Having
overcome the alienation and otherness of the cyber, having mastered the virtual
qualities and protocols of the parametric, having achieved the intricacy and
elegance of the digital, and having fully embraced the potential of 3d computer
software and cad/cam manufacturing technologies, it is now time for architects
to show off!
Conjure up the extravagance of furniture design, the abundance of cgi in
Hollywood, the profuseness of bio-techno ornamentation or the lavishness of
Middle-Eastern and Asian super-urbanism. Exuberance not only celebrates new
Baroque theatricality, formal sophistication and digital virtuosity; it also
debates a plethora of joyful and intelligent ways in which experimental
architecture manages to cope with the contemporary turmoil in global politics,
economics and ecology.
