  • A Paradigm

    • Authors: João Manuel Henriques Miranda
      Abstract: As a society, we are currently immersed in a new reality, as well as a new paradigm for locating (cultural) 'truths.' A world in which information is everywhere. Because of its modern and specific requirements, as well as a new demand (from society and others) and pursuit entering the business, new (digital) methods have been created to fulfill the requirements adjacent to this new way of working, and the corresponding professional business. The current uncertain contemporary time, which is becoming increasingly global in scope, necessitated the development of a program that would respond to a more global inclusive approach. As a result, it should correspond in some way to a unification code/language/pattern to answer current reality hypotheses and paradigms, as well as the development of construction. How might technology impact the construction industry's analytical and productive levels' As a result, the discussion of physical (and built) atmospheres and environments can also be applied to virtual ones. The virtual environment is a space created by combining light, sound, and images. In this sense, it is possible to create spaces that do not exist in reality as well as those that do exist in reality but have different properties. Transposing the 'desire' to a sustainable ideology for these atmohpheres in the construction activity accordingly with new global guidelines, the aim should be focused to promote Circular Economy in the Construction industry. To achieve that, several keynotes must be initiated and introduced technologically into the industry. Firstly, on becoming a more digital friendly society, that pursues better qualities throughout technology, for certain industries. For example, primarily in order to unify the national ‘digital territory’, some measures can be adapted, for instance by introducing an Information Classification System optimized for Sustainability, in its global notion. This system will be oriented towards the BIM methodology and will serve not only the sustainability component, but also the remaining BIM uses, such as the management of the BIM process (LoD: Level of Detail of the BIM Model), again for example to the: extraction of quantities, compatibility of specialties or work planning, and all phases of the life. Additionally, this systematic approach once in use, and with a standard cryptograph (naming / numbering) for the elements / components / spaces, will bring a codification and a ‘general language pattern’ for the construction industry, that allows a greater and easier understanding to all. Improving the collaborative concept, communication between participants, and goal unification. Similarly, would enable for larger communication to many stakeholders and the general public, who will have this concept/terminology, allowing them to communicate with professionals in a clearer manner. The system will enable shared and collaborative processes, driven not only by architects and engineers, but also by multiple construction experts acting within this digital culture. When these technologies and data are carefully put into the models and digital twins, the result provides for a broader potential of consequences/conclusions, such as a clearer conversation and openness on critical and creative advancements.
  • Technoculture

    • Authors: Raquel Lopes
      Abstract: Digital technology, complexity sciences and transdisciplinarity are creating new paths for research and cultural expressions. This paper examines how technoculture, and the merging of arts, science and technology, are reshaping the current cultural landscape and human habitats. Technoculture will be regarded as an ecosystem and semiotics followed by an analyses on how it is modulating human interactions, artistic expressions, promoting the emergence of transdisciplinarity and hybrid fields of knowledge. To address hybridization in space-related research and production, it is fundamental to ask what kind of spatial practices are emerging within this context and how they are contributing to the redefinition of what is considered inhabitable space. The paper will showcase and analyse the impact of authors, research and practices that redefine spatial concepts, spatial models, perception and mediums, bridging the physical with the immaterial.
  • Tired Complexity

    • Authors: Johan Voordouw
      Abstract: Tired Complexity offers a critical commentary on contemporary digital discourse in architecture. The paper speculates for an evolved lens for the term complexity, arguing that at present, its focus on quantitative measures undermines its own breadth of opportunity and social relevance. The paper is structured through a series of questions and prompts, exploring how much complexity does architecture need, where in its practice is it best leveraged; how can it be purposefully deployed; and how might it improve the built environment' The goal of the article is to expand architecture’s use and understanding of complexity. Using literary sources, it argues for a more just, and equitable understanding of complexity, one that prioritizes reciprocal, empathetic relations that acknowledge the messy, pluralism of the world.
  • A respite for a cultural contemplation

    • Authors: Ramona Costea, Tiberiu Teodor-Stanciu
      Abstract: This paper approaches the experience of the digital culture through a research project developed in Iaşi, a city that bears distinct particularities regarding the way its identities permeated in the built landscape.             The project is a virtual city, able to bring together different landscapes, timelines, and meanings of the city in order to built a digital collective memory of a place. The project is being developed as a means to better understand, archive, explore, envision, explain and actively use past, present and future possible realities. The digital experience becomes a tool and not a purpose, which, in a pandemic, proves relevant in studying human perception and memory. In a context of isolation measures, the digital city proved to be the adequated background for social encounter and experiencing the outside world. In times when guided tours of the city lost the social component that brought together enthusiasts, the tool of a digital city builds an ever growing agora.
