summary The interesting distinction established by Collin Rowe and Robert Slutzky regarding the concept of transparency in modern architecture can be further enriched in relation to digital architecture and the new ways in which architects may address the design of material limits. The polarity between materiality and virtuality, between being and appearance is challenged with the concept of eversion and could lead to what we have referred to as virtual transparency. The intricate performative latticed skins designed and fabricated thanks to C.A.D./C.A.M. techniques have produced different states of transparent visual effects that either conceal or partially suggest silhouettes producing latticed transparencies. Finally, the development of next generation liquid crystal displays may introduce highly responsive transparent membranes in architecture allowing a one step further virtual transparency that could be described as translucent transparency.
