Systemization of Architectural Design through Advancement of Information and Communication Technology: Possibilities of a Life-theory Approach
Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 548-551
The design and implementation processes of architecture changed radically in the late 20th century. Architects began to apply computer programs to design and conceptualise processes. This study classifies and analyzes some of these techniques, and demonstrates processes by which architecture came to establish an organic relationship with the environment while being influenced by the theories of life.
