Description

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.
