Processes of construction are related to available technologies of production and assembly. Internet Technologies (IT)  have made a deep impact on design possibilities and the control of production logistics – enabling feats much as freeform architecture and increasingly precise elaboration.

Performance driven envelopes

The impact of climate design on architecture is obvious. But design trends are currently attempting to implement climate design merely as an additional item in architectonic planning. The alternative is to start with an architectural attitude that will produce a

Deflate-ables

Pneumatic structures have been thoroughly investigated and developed during the 60’s. However, the energy crisis and aesthetic developments prevented this type of structures from becoming part of the mainstream construction methods. Nowadays these structures are typically used in special areas

Imagine facades

The facade technology of the 20th century is related to the dissolution of the massive wall into a separation of structure and facade. Looking at the development of facade technology now, after 60 years of curtain wall systems, 30 years
