Sensitive transformations of physical territories: Digital and material procedures in designing
RESPECTING FRAGILE PLACES [29th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-9-4912070-1-3], University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Architecture (Slovenia) 21-24 September 2011, pp.589-594
This paper focuses on two issues concerning advanced architectural design techniques. The first issue has to do with design methodology and more precisely with the analysis of the fundamental ‘components’, which might compose a fragile place or environment and bear a clearly distinctive character. The second issue is related to a more architectonic agenda and concerns the consequent creation of a holistic architectural product, aiming mainly to the basic architectural concept of ‘inhabitation’. Furthermore, concerning the overall process, the idea of metabolism is becoming the central point, when referring, both to the attempt of conceiving a specific natural territory within the digital realms, and to the architectural form-finding process.
