Architecture, Spatial Planning and Civil Engineering

Description

The last three decades show how is evolved a complicated relation between architecture and digital technologies, through an absolute skepticism to moments of enthusiasm. The new rhetoric of digital technologies tents to embrace fundamental concepts of architecture, by theorizing another time as in the modern tradition, correlations between form-space-structure. The objective of this paper is to verify the hypothesis which admits that digital culture is changing the relations between space-form and tectonics. In the ambiguous contemporaneity, on the symbioses between spirit and the digital, Toyo Ito’s outcome seems to be the one of the most convincing. This paper tents to analyze the Ito’s work in the perspective of the new poetics and metaphors deriving from a liberated architecture from materiality. This understanding is made through a comparison between authors as Greg Lynn or Patrik Schumacher that also have implemented in their work the digital technologies but in different dimensions.

The Influence Of Digital Culture In Tectonics And The Language Of Form In Architecture TOYO ITO, GREG LYNN, PATRICK SCHOUMAKER

Durres, Albania

The last three decades show how is evolved a complicated relation between architecture and digital technologies, through an absolute skepticism to moments of enthusiasm. The new rhetoric of digital technologies tents to embrace fundamental concepts of architecture, by theorizing another time as in the modern tradition, correlations between form-space-structure. The objective of this paper is to verify the hypothesis which admits that digital culture is changing the relations between space-form and tectonics. In the ambiguous contemporaneity, on the symbioses between spirit and the digital, Toyo Ito’s outcome seems to be the one of the most convincing. This paper tents to analyze the Ito’s work in the perspective of the new poetics and metaphors deriving from a liberated architecture from materiality. This understanding is made through a comparison between authors as Greg Lynn or Patrik Schumacher that also have implemented in their work the digital technologies but in different dimensions.
