Digital Architecture

As the digital world has expanded since the end of the last century, we find our self re-examine different aspects of the teaching and the practice of architecture. What concern our notion of the three dimensional space becomes more complex, revaluing the rules of the architects in the digital era. The architecture is moving towards a process of transformation called dematerialisation in the cyber space.
You can define the concept of cyberspace as a fictitious digital space in which one we are momentarily present. Cyberspace is accessible to everyone who are capable to transport our presence inside this. Our perception of the world is three dimensional. The cyberspace can contain 4 dimensions. The virtual architecture is definitely semiotic, consisting of codes that insinuate different meanings where the simbology can be infinite.
The virtual architecture is in continuously evolution in every social aspect. It is the ideal platform of experimentation, education and invention. The virtual reality is an important tool of the practice of architecture, a tool that creates and simulates an environment, a tool that helps to understand, a tool that permits to develop and diffuse theories and concepts. Momentarily it’s a tool.
Theory and representation
Through the iAA i study and explore the virtual possibility of shapes and spaces analyzing and to outlining the essence of the object and the project.
Ideograms is a graphical interpretation of a concept that collect investigations data. Architectonically the process of projectation and analysis is on the highest level.
This type of writing is sustained by an analogous that is reality that somehow is parallel to another reality but not identical to its self. Analogous reflects on the characteristics and aspects of the reality without bringing the conventional meanings. Analogous offer us a way to look and perceive the familiar argumentation, opening the possibility to new forms and new thoughts. It Is possible in this way to read and to discover and find new meanings. Analogically, a non physical project is based on 7 architectural elements: site, density, depth, openness, proportion, composition and light will all together create a place narrative and poetic.
The purpose is to built a logic and chaotic world to represent an aesthetic and visual experience to charge inventiveness.
This kind of elaboration of digital graphic architecture explores the technological possibility to cross the real borderline, giving life to an unreal world where the meanings of matters, shape and time change continuously. The meanings is to stimulate our perception to give life as individual and subjective way to illusionate worlds otherwise impossible. However this kind of projectation (of virtual ambiance) it promotes as a tool of visualisation, stimulus and research of the architecture of the future.
The dynamism, speediness, the value of time, like in the music, purchase a relevant importance. The movement and the rhythm on the virtual space create a whole experience. These characters influences the way to draw this kind of space representing a photogram of itself depending of a function X, the flow.
This kind of virtual evolution of architecture is absolutely perceivable and regainable in the idea of the evolution of the society in the city. Society adapted by users that interacts continuously to create, modify and developed the surrounding environment. In a virtual environment, this changement is sudden and infinitive.
The experimentation is dictated by evolution CAD (Computer-Aided Design) permits virtual ambience and experimental new spaces for living, a computerized revolution of the dynamical social moment. Spaces are inheritaged of the utopical moveable city of Archigram.
Digital architecture (D.A.) as a tool that influence the projectation of the space and thought. A new instrument much powerful than the classic architectural modelling of the object. The D.A. has already changed the concept to do and to think architecture, thinking about 3D experimentation, testing, controlling, visualization, practice and instrument have already pushed the construction possibilities in order to create new linguistic potential reworking the concept of space reducing the time and cost of projectation.
New qualities and new potentials learning to perceive the aesthetic of a new virtual era. To begin to acknowledge the D.A. it should predispose already to look with different eyes the digital spaces, its development and if they exist its spatial boundary.
If architecture is the writing of space during the time, the writing of the people in then history, so the D.A. is the digitalizing writing of multiple vision of future spaces.
Abstraction open the possibility of the invention
