title Abstractions as a Means of Interacting with the Environment
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 122-127
summary The employment of digital tools in architecture is based on a new approach to design that acknowledges the value of research and feedback from the environment. Abstractions are a means of minimising the complexity of information that surrounds a designed object. They are seen as focused interest on certain aspects of a field that are exaggerated on the cost of others. The use of abstractions and diagrammatic representations is discussed within the context of a computerised design studio.
