Explores the idea that designed materials necessitate new relationships between material behaviour, specification and architectural representation. This book includes case studies developed at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture in Copenhagen.
Examines the evolution and importance of prototypes in the architectural process. Placing emphasis on research and experimentation, this book shows how prototyping can inform architecture with maquettes, models and full-scale trial assemblies. It also examines the importance of prototyping within architecture to achieve high quality construction.
