Published on

In today's economy, technology is part of every single aspect of our life. 

Digital architecture uses computer aided design, programming, simulation and images to create virtual forms and physical structures. The same can be said to refer to other aspects of architecture that are defined by digital technologies.

Digital Architecture - Modern Technologies in Architecture

  1. 1. Digital Architecture by Çelik Nimani The Blue Limit
  2. 2. Lets talk about Digital Architecture What’s gonna be covered What is Digital Architecture? Virtual Spaces & Virtual Architecture No Limits Data & Internet of Things Software 3D Printers and New Materials Virtual & Augmented Reality
  3. 3. What is Digital Architecture? In todays economy, technology is part of every single aspect of our life. Digital architecture uses computer aided design, programming, simulation and images to create virtual forms and physical structures.The same can be said to refer to other aspects of architecture that are defined by digital technologies. Todays technological advancements have even brought Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality to the use in architecture. Digital Architecture
  4. 4. Digital architecture is not limited to concepts and ideas, but also represents spaces that require human interaction, like the virtual environments created in games. During the recent years, the term virtual and virtual space, has become a central part of our culture. These terms have different meanings depending on the context, from the imaginary aspect to metaphysics and high-tech. Virtual Spaces Digital Architecture
  5. 5. Minecraft Digital Architecture Example
  6. 6. Architecture is an important part of video games and together they formed simulated spaces. Architecture in video games, like in real-life, is always present and plays an important role. In video games there are different categories though: architecture with realistic background (cities in Assassin’s Creed, environments in GTA 5, etc.), maze architecture, architecture that tells a story and surreal architecture (architecture beyond earth). Virtual Architecture Digital Architecture
  7. 7. Digital Architecture removes the possible limitations an architect might have when creating complex forms through computer algorithms. This new field also enhances the possible outcomes in terms of design, sparking debates about the role of technology in our society and also creating non-standard forms that have come to life from architects like Zaha Hadid or UN Studio. No Limits Digital Architecture
  8. 8. Heydar Aliyev Center Zaha Hadid Architects Project in Baku, Azerbaijan - Winner of the award: Design of the Year 2014 from the Design Museum in London Digital Architecture
  9. 9. Whatever you create in todays economy, you will create data. There’s even entire buildings (the Verizon Building for example) that serve as data storages or better known as data centers. These storage buildings with no windows have our pictures, our banking transactions, our cats on Facebook and what else. Data in architecture is not that new however with the recent development of IOT Devices data has now a different and more important meaning. Customers now want to read that data and access it on a daily basis, and not leave it there for the firms or architects. Digital Architecture & Data Digital Architecture
  10. 10. Todays customers wants to know more about their building. They want to have automated thermostats that learn their behaviors and connect with them, they want doors and windows that can be opened with mobile apps, they want automated safety systems, they want to know how much power is their house consuming on their smartphone, etc. Having these many internet connected devices in mind, it’s important to emphasize that buildings built today are more quality and performance oriented and way more innovative then those built in the past. And you cannot simply built them anymore just like that. IOT Digital Architecture
  11. 11. Today, there are over 50,000,000,000 devices that are connected… and the number is growing every day! Digital Architecture
  12. 12. Some of the ways how IOT Devices can be used: - Monitoring - Inspection - Energy saving - Security - Automatization - Remote Control IOT Digital Architecture
  13. 13. Besides the data, the architectural creations of today also create media through users or on their own. If a building is cool, innovative or has a unique architecture, people come there to take a selfie to post on Facebook, make a checkin on Swarm, post a tweet on Twitter or what else. This creates interaction, visibility, engagement and connection with other users and makes a new type of marketing, that wasn’t thought of in the past. Media Digital Architecture
  14. 14. Digital Architecture cannot exist without the software. These include software like: Software AutoDesk 3DSMax Rhino Sketchup Fuzo VR IRIS VR And there are also apps like Houzz, Formit, etc. Digital Architecture
  15. 15. Printerët 3D 3D Printing From small scale models to big scale printing
  16. 16. 3D Printing is an important component of Digital Architecture. Speed, visualization and cost reduction - With 3D printing, companies now are able to deliver faster to customers, be more visible and save a lot of money. Scale & Details - The 3D printed models can have different sizes and the amount of details is remarkable compared ot methods used in the past. Freedom - 3D printers give creators the freedom to create models that they would not be able to create through methods used in the past. 3D Printing Digital Architecture
  17. 17. 3D Printing Robot
  18. 18. In June 2016, Beijing saw the world's first 3D-printed house, which architects said marks a home-building revolution. Read more: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2016- 07/02/content_25940126.htm The first 3D printed house!
  19. 19. VR Architecture - The New Revolution
  20. 20. Virtual Reality is a computer-generated simulation of a three- dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors. In the recent years, VR has started to make it’s way to architecture as well and is brining a whole new level of customer interaction. With VR there’s no need even for 3D printing, as the experience for the customer gets immersive, powerful and on a scale from 1:1. Digital Architecture VR in Architecture
  21. 21. Architecture in VR is not only limited to customer experience. There are now new ways, although limited ways, to create entire architectural drawings inside VR environments. There are also new softwares that are coming up to aid the VR design process like Fuzor and IrisVR See this cool video of VR in architecture here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4ldAnAXW8o VR - A different experience Digital Architecture
  22. 22. VR of course is new in architecture and the applicability is limited, however we can say for sure that it’s come and it’s already changing the way how companies interact with customers. The client now has a totally different perspective, and besides the speed, cost and many other things that it will change, VR will also bring the possibly to have the customer get more engage with the architect. VR - What can we expect? Digital Architecture
  23. 23. Augmented Reality in Architecture
  24. 24. Microsoft has developed this new technology called Hololens, which is an even more immersive environment than VR. It’s even newer as a technology, but through it, the architect works together with the virtual environment and real environment. It’s an amazing tool! AR also has found applicability in smartphone apps and other mobile softwares that engage planning, designing and construction in a whole new level. Even interior design has become more engaging. The customer now plans ahead how their favorite sofa will look like through the IKEA Catalog app or see how their sound system fits with the Bang and Olufsen AR app. Augmented Reality in Architecture Digital Architecture
