summary Digital media, with the capacity to master complexity, has permitted an unprecedented ability to reinterpret natural processes. An infinite number of realities can emerge from their interpretations that can be developed into physical structures or spatial models that can further be appropriated to inform the design of architecture. In this paper the potential of these digital interpretations to inform architectural design processes will be discussed. Demonstrating how digital media can operate as an interface that couples information with cognitive processes I will show how digital media can be constructed in order to intensify our perception of our natural environment. Examples from projects that were developed with students during the spring semester of 2008 at Georgia Institute of Technology will be used to support the argument.
