N°21- Architecture and computers: action and reaction in the digital design revolution

Here are some interesting quotes from Architecture’s point of view in introducing digital technologies. I found this book especially useful because they talk about the use of digital in the classroom and give examples of some case studies that would be worth looking into.

“ With the increasing emphasis on digital skill, yet another layer of abstraction by simulacra has been introduced, with the potential of separating students even further from the reality of construction” James. S (2001) p. 211

“like Picasso knowing anatomy before being able to convincingly fragment it” James. S (2001) p. 212

“ Very few schools seems to have an integrated plan for introducing computers into all studios, focusing on a selection of course that teach proficiency instead” James. S (2001) p. 212
