Overview

Digital Tectonics outlines an emerging paradigm in architectural design – a renewed interest in structure and a growing synergy between architects and engineers. This has been facilitated by the use of digital technologies, which are affording ever greater insights into the structural behaviour of buildings and enabling the fabrication and assembly of increasingly complex forms. Digital Tectonics charts this new development, with contributions from some of the world’s leading architects, engineers and theorists.
