Kurzbeschreibung

August 2001
Computers have revolutionized architecture, raising issues that are forcing a paradigm shift in the profession. Intially seen as a positive breakthrough that would make previously inconceivable explorations possible, computer-aided design programmes are increasingly being viewed as a mixed blessing that should be carefully accommodated so that architects retain creative identity. A fascinating introduction expolores the theory behind cyberspace and traces the effects that the worship of technology has had on society. This is followed by five chapters exploring different aspects of the computer in architecture. Themes discussed include the computer as a design tool; Frank Gehry's pioneering use of the CATIA programme, first developed to design fighter planes; the results of letting the computer lead the design process; the graphic backlash led by Moore, Ruble, Yudell; and the place of the computer in education, with examples of student projects from the University of Southern California School of Architecture. The book features prominent projects by Gehry, Fric Own Moss, Morphosis, Foster and Partners, Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners, and others.

Synopsis

Computers have revolutionized architecture, raising issues that are forcing a paradigm shift in the profession. Intially seen as a positive breakthrough that would make previously inconceivable explorations possible, computer-aided design programmes are increasingly being viewed as a mixed blessing that should be carefully accommodated so that architects retain creative identity. A fascinating introduction expolores the theory behind cyberspace and traces the effects that the worship of technology has had on society. This is followed by five chapters exploring different aspects of the computer in architecture. Themes discussed include the computer as a design tool; Frank Gehry's pioneering use of the CATIA programme, first developed to design fighter planes; the results of letting the computer lead the design process; the graphic backlash led by Moore, Ruble, Yudell; and the place of the computer in education, with examples of student projects from the University of Southern California School of Architecture. The book features prominent projects by Gehry, Fric Own Moss, Morphosis, Foster and Partners, Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners, and others.
