Summary With contributions from some of the world's most advanced thinkers on this subject, this book looks at new ways of thinking about the digital within architecture. It speculates upon implications of Persistent Modelling for architectural practice, reconsidering the relationship between architectural representation and architectural artefact particularly in the fields of responsive and adaptive architectures
