title Digital space and ephemeral visuals as determinants of contemporary design: A Survey of Projects of Architectural Students in CAAD
source Digital Design [21th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-1-6] Graz (Austria) 17-20 September 2003, pp. 607-611
summary Outside of views produced deliberately for the design of architecture, there exists a large body of images; visuals of no materialized spaces, constructed only on paper or in pixels in popular cultural media – editorial illustration, comic strips and books, cinema, television, advertising and web imagery. All the aforementioned visuals, fragments of architecture are within our everyday life and more important influence strong spatial paradigms for students of architecture. The proposed presentation is about the work within a university Computer Aided Architectural Design studio where students asked to investigate the ephemeral environments that surround their everyday life and translate them into architectural intentions. This paper argues that the digitally mediated design of young students of architecture incorporates the ubiquity of contemporary life-style; reflects through student design proposals the new orientations of contemporary architecture and finally revises the integration of the CAAD studio with the ‘traditional’ studios of design within the school of Architecture.
