TitleTo walk like an Egyptian: five points on the subject of “Architectural Research and the Digital World”
Author(s)Fernandes, Eduardo Jorge Cabral dos Santos
Issue date2008
PublisherEuropean Association for Architectural Education (EAAE)
Abstract(s)If we focus on the velocity of change, it is tempting to look at the digital world as a paradigm in itself: as an end, not as a means. But if we focus on the traditional instruments of Architectural Research we risk refusing to see how technology can help achieve a better understanding of the architecture of the past and the necessities of the present and immediate future. We should try to walk like an Egyptian, looking around, dancing on the sand of digital technology without the fear of looking silly, moving sideways between global and local, technology and tradition, reality and simulacrum, images and architectonic facts.
