Digital design and fabrication are mainstream practice in architectural design. Nevertheless, there seems to be a gap in the way architects manipulate computer-based tools and the way these processes are articulated in architectural theory. More often than not, the integration of architecture and digital technologies happens only on an instrumental level, where digital is associated with making the design and construction process more efficient. In this project, I propose to critically study the relationship of architecture and technology as organisers of space. The principal goal of this project is to offer a framework for an informed and productive discussion about the role of computation in design and production of architectural experiences.
