Digitalization Takes Command

This course will critically survey the claims made since the introduction of digital technology to the discipline and practice of architecture and evaluate them in relation to its effective impact. We will do intensive readings of the phenomena of digitalization along the lines of a number of niches of digital research in architecture and we will discuss the correspondence between theoretical premises and expectations on the one hand, and technical actualizations and practical limitations on the other. The seminar will be based on discussions within the group of students and conversations and interviews with leading young practitioners, which will be presenting and discussing their work.
