About

Join us for a symposium and launch exploring and celebrating the themes discussed in the new edition of Architectural Design (AD) Discrete: Reappraising the Digital in Architecture, guest-edited by Gilles Retsin, Bartlett Tutor and Architectural Design MArch Programme Director. 

Discrete: Reappraising the Digital in Architecture

Editor's summary
After two decades of experimentation with the digital, the prevalent paradigm of formal continuity is being revised and questioned by an emerging generation of architects and theorists. While the world struggles with a global housing crisis and the impact of accelerated automation on labour, digital designers’ narrow focus on style and differentiation seems increasingly out of touch.

Discrete: Reappraising the Digital in Architecture charts an emerging body of work that is based on a computational understanding of the discrete part or building block. It proposes that a new, digital understanding of assembly based on parts contains the greatest promise for a complex, open-ended, adaptable architecture. 

Architectural Design (AD)

Architectural Design (AD) is a UK-based architectural journal first launched in 1930 as Architectural Design and Construction. The journal is currently published by John Wiley & Sons, and has been edited by Helen Castle since 2001.
