architectural education in the post-digital age

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This issue of SAJ gathers a group of researchers and educators working in schools and institutes across Europe, connected by the common interest in exploring the changes in the field of architectural design arising at the intersection of the three prominent lines of research, being: material based studies, computational design and digital fabrication.
The title of the publication pays tribute to the title of a seminal book “Architecture of Digital Age: Design and Manufacturing” edited by Branko Kolarević and published exactly a decade ago. This was an early and comprehensive record of the paradigm shift in architecture based on the introduction of digital tools for designing and making. If we accept that full integration of the “digital” processes has been completed by now, the concluding aim of the publication is to provide an overview of implications and innovations within architectural research and education. At the present time which can then bear the label of “post-digital”, we can once again begin to examine notions of materiality, design and construction.
