Description
The cities and buildings that we inhabit represent temporal manifestations of mass, space, time, and memory. With the advent of digital methodologies, cities, buildings, and interior spaces may be conceived more fluidly in terms of information. This shift from analog means to digital systems of conceptual design and material production enables a more profound interaction between designer and audience. Likewise, an inability to separate the real from the digital has emerged., whereby these methods have converged to form part of the same process.

How can the development of 21st century urban space and architecture be conceptualized, controlled, and created? How do such environments grow, transition, and transform over time? How does the integration of digital conceptualization tools with physical matter produce increasingly fluid architectural forms, flexible spaces, and transformative assemblies?

The first volume of New York-based d3’s dialog series calls for work in architectural theory, design postulations, and built form that blurs the boundary between mapping and making of cities, buildings, spaces, and objects. Through d3:dialog>assemble, we shall collectively explore how such fusion occurs and how conventional methods remain relevant.
