With contributions from some of the world¿s most advanced thinkers on this subject, this book is essential reading for anyone looking at new ways of thinking about the digital within architecture. It speculates upon implications of Persistent Modelling for architectural practice, reconsidering the relationship between architectural representation and architectural artefact particularly in the fields of responsive and adaptive architectures.

Phil Ayresis Assistant Professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts School of Architecture (RASA), Copenhagen, Denmark.
