summary The universe of digital fabrication does not only allow buildings to be produced as quick, precise, multiply-generated objects (prototypes) but also reduces, in a very specific way, their presence as original entities. This implies a radical disjunction between the past and the future of the building industry, with all the intrinsic changes and transformations that might affect both the architectural product and the maker. Drawing mainly on Walter Benjaminís work on technical reproducibility and information, but also on Barthesí theory of fashion, the present paper will try to analyze the theoretical and practical implications of these transformations.
