Book Release "Atlas of Digital Architecture"

After four years of intensive work, the workgroup "Architectural Informatics" released a compendium on digital methods in architecture.

We are happy to announce the release of the book "Atlas of Digital Architecture", in which Reinhard König and Sven Schneider co-authored two chapters.

"The Atlas offers an orientation to the myriad ways in which computers are used in architecture today, such as: 3D Modelling and CAD; Rendering and Visualisation; Scripting, Typography, Text & Code; Digital Manufacturing and Model Making; GIS, BIM, Simulation, and Big Data & Machine Learning, to name but these.

Throughout, the Atlas provides both a historical perspective and a conceptual outlook to convey a sense of continuity between past, present, and future; and going beyond the confines of the traditional textbook, it also postulates a theoretical framework for architecture in the 21st century.

The Atlas of Digital Architecture then understands itself as an invitation to the rich feast of possibilities and professional profiles that digital technology puts on the table today, and hopes to whet the reader’s appetite for exploring and sampling their great potential."
