Book Description

Jan. 8 1991 140515697X 978-1405156974
The Digital Art of Architectural and Engineering Design explores the extent to which digital technologies are breaking down the barriers between architecture and engineering, making possible a genuine integration of the many interrelated aspects of design and construction. The book takes an in-depth look at particular digital techniques and their implementations, which are dramatically changing the nature of the design process itself, and illustrates this with a set of case studies that could not have been developed without the application of leading-edge digital design techniques.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

There is currently a strong drive towards innovative digital knowledge-based processes in the construction industry, which in turn are enabling designers and contractors to become more competitive without sacrificing creativity. Conventional design processes will be radically overhauled in the next few years as a consequence of this trend.

This book describes in detail the digital processes needed to construct complete buildings, and explains the digital applications needed for design and construction. The author presents a balanced approach that illustrates the possibilities of creative expression in digital environments on the one hand, whilst demonstrating the digital techniques needed to realise such ambitions on the other.

The innovative approaches to design and construction that are described in this book will impact on most sectors of the construction industry all over the world in the next few years. These approaches and techniques will transform the ways in which design offices work, and this will also affect the way students of architecture and engineering learn. The book provides a resource for students and professionals interested in digital solutions to specific design issues.
