The digital design paradox

The emergence of computation in design is an ongoing evolution, rather than a technological revolution. Contemporary digital tools have influenced the image of architecture, as object, as shelter, and as icon – but digital design has yet to change our understanding of architecture, or alter its larger impact on the built world around us. Although design tools, including computation, and digital production are now well intertwined in architectural methodology, additional innovations are emerging which have potential to bring the true value of computation into design methods. If these tools are widely implemented there is potential for this digital evolution to become a technological revolution in architecture.
