Digitalia: Architecture And The Digital, The Environmental And The Avant-Garde

Susannah Hagan boldly discusses the fraught relationship between key dominating areas of architectural discourse - digital design, environmental design, and avant-garde design. Digitalia firstly demonstrates that drawing such firm lines between architectural spheres is damaging and foolish, particularly as both environmental and avant-garde practices are experimenting with the digital, and secondly remonstrates with an avant-garde that has repudiated the social/ethical agenda of the modernist avant-garde because it failed the first time round. It is environmental architecture that has picked up the social/ethical ball and is running with it, using the digital to very different, and more far-reaching, ends. As the debates rage, this book is a key read for all who are involved or intrigued. About the Author Susannah Hagan is Reader in Architecture at the University of East London, head of the MA Architecture: Sustainability + Design and founder of Research into Environment and Design (RED) at the University of East London. Her previous publications include Taking Shape (2001), and City Fights, co-authored with Mark Hewitt (2001).
