Item description for Bits and Spaces: CAAD for Physiscal, Virtual and Hybrid Architecture at ETH Zurich by Maia Engeli...

"Bits and Spaces" presents 33 exciting new projects which demonstrate the growing significance of CAAD for today's architects. Divided into 5 main chapters: Design in Space and Time; Learning and Creative Collaboration; Virtual Environments; IT and Practice; and Blurring Boundaries, the projects illustrate how computers can be used innovatively and creatively in designing physical, virtual and hybrid architecture. Particular emphasis is placed on the interaction between man and computer, and also on the aesthetic aspects. The book is accompanied by a CD-Rom which documents the design processes through animation sequences, demonstrating the dynamic features of the projects. Whilst these tools, installations and multi-media projects have arisen out of the field of architecture, they exceed the narrow confines of this discipline to touch upon areas such as interior design, graphic design and information technology.

Reviews - What do customers think about Bits and Spaces: CAAD for Physiscal, Virtual and Hybrid Architecture at ETH Zurich?

A Wonderful book  Aug 21, 2001
Visit to get a first impression of the books contents, and then try to imagine the best book possible made out of this material. This is what you will get.
Great Read, Interesting Research  May 21, 2001
At first I wasn't sure what to think upon opening this book, but now I'm very glad that I took the chance to get it. Everything about the book from the layout to its graphic design to the interactivity of the content (which is greatly enhanced by the impressive cd-rom included with the book)is a step above. As far as content goes the book contains a great deal of provocative thought. It offers the reader a glimpse of what is and what could be for the future of architecture and design professions in general. The title could be a bit misleading because it isn't so much about CAD in the strictest sense as it is about the inevitable interaction and meshing of architecture, computers, and current and future technologies that may very well offer a different kind of architecture than what we know today. The fact that it is a book that has been very recently published and includes relatively up to date information (including projects from the year 2000) is also a definite plus considering the fast and furious rate of technological progress we're experiencing. All in all, a great book. Futurist thinkers will not regret this buy.
Impressive Research Projects !  Mar 16, 2001
