DIGITAL TRANSFORMATIONS

The transformation of an abstract prototype into a surface.

Contemporary urban landscape projects have been preoccupied by the interface and transition between hard and soft surfaces. These edge conditions have been revisited in order to generate new formal possibilities, as well as a range of performance attributes, including ecological, or environmental dynamics, and new social occupations of public space. Embedded in this subject is also the influence of digital computation and the capacity to produce geometrical complexity both in paper space and through digital fabrication technologies.
