A systemic transformation is underway in architectural design, engineering and construction. The discipline and profession of architecture is being reshaped in a moment where information, insight and predictions generated during the design process move into construction no longer essentially via drawings. Other, more profound digital techniques yield fundamentally different workflows, responsibilities and business models for architects. This book offers a comprehensive framework, detailed analysis and critical assessment of the challenges and opportunities inherent in those changes. The author sets out to provide direction for a new era in architectural creation that can be understood and managed by a profession which must become better equipped to direct its future.
