digital architecture and diagram - before and after
Eren Çıracı | Diagrams in architecture can be categorized as either representational or generative tools. In the 1990s a new discourse on architecture shaped by the Deleuzian concept of abstract machines prioritized diagram as a generative tool for architectural design. The digital revolution in architecture was made possible by the introduction of animation software and digital fabrication tools to the discipline, but it was the ideas revolving around the diagram that guided this revolution. Currently there’s a shift in focus in architecture as a response to a changing world. Diagram needs new allies to stay relevant.
