title Future Traditions. Rethinking Traditions and Envisioning the Future of Architecture Through the Use of Digital Technologies

summary The debate around the impact of digital technologies in architecture is usually centered on the discovery of new possibilities for the discipline. However, the past and traditions can also play an important role in the future of architecture. After 50 years of technological assimilation, architects have today the necessary distance to embrace a critical reflection about how computers support the dynamics of continuity or rupture in the discipline. Thus, to understand how digital technologies can contribute to rethink traditions and to inspire the future of architecture became the main goal of the 1st eCAADe Regional International Workshop dedicated to the theme of “Future Traditions”, hosted by the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto, Portugal.
