The book presents the latest developments in the field of
architecture as it has been reshaped by the use of digital technologies.
Focused in the work of young architects, it presents more than 60
projects and some small essays. For this book I have worked both as
editor and designer starting from the initial idea and working on it
almost until it was sent for print.
The projects selected are mostly small-scale projects done by young
architects since the focus of the book was on presenting new and
innovative ideas of using technologies that are already available and do
not require huge budgets. The material of the book is organized in four
chapters (fabrication, scripting, interaction and poetics). There is a
small essay for each chapter, a general introduction and an essay by
Supermanoeuvre. The book is relatively text-heavy since most of the
projects required extensive technical descriptions.
The book has a square, 22 x 22 cm, format and almost 400 pages. The
layout is simple and adaptable to the great variety of available
material. The overall feel is a bit rougher than the previous books
following the experimental and self-built character of the projects.
