The advent of digital technology is deeply influencing architecture, not just in terms of new software modifying the ways of designing, but also in terms of how architecture and architectures are conceived and perceived by professionals and by the general public.
From the single artifact to the fabric of the city, the authors envisage a progressive dilution of the architectural practice within mechanical and dry digital tasks, and warn thus against a progressive loss of significance of the architectural element in its human-centered aspects. The book then proposes a critical approach arguing the need to take ownership of the architectural process again and to reconsider digital software and programs as tools of architecture rather than subjects of the architectural experience.
