The DIGITAL SOCIETY/TECHNICS
Lecture in RPI-NY years ago
"As we face the "digital revolution", it seems necessary to undertake critical reflection which will consider the appropriation of the recent technological paradigm by architecture. in the ambit of this lecture, i will attempt to show how the concept of the "digital machine" was generated in the underground of western thinking, and how this device has become a mediating entity in our relationship with the real world. i will argue that the presence of this "digital machine" implies profound interference in the discipline of architecture (from the stage of the project, through construction and urban design) and will support a post-modern programme of hybridisation with the "machine", able to provide theoretical assistance for the construction of a new space of human interaction as well as of new ways of perception and being."
