summary The research presented is about digital revolution in architecture, which has contributed to the birth of new figurative trends. The work was conducted through the definition of a framework to identify and classify architectural design elements that should be attributed to the methods and techniques of design computing, then applied to sixty prominent recent architectures which are acknowledged products of digital means. The early results suggest that a new era is coming, where the conceptual starting point of designers is often born in the digital space, taking advantage of the augmented representation skills to control and manipulate form. We will also do an overview of these new architectural trends, discussing both causes and cultural roots and identifying eventual criticisms and further developments.
