Today, after the digital revolution of the 2000s, which radically redefined architectural production conditions, a new generation of artists, architects and designers is developing a praxis at the crossroads of computer science, engineering, and biology.
Henceforth architecture is involved in “matter”, which is turning out to be both effective and capable of doing away with the distinction between nature and artifice, ushering in a new order of hybridization. How are we to think about this new ecology of design, a condition that is as architectural as it is political and cultural, within which nature and architecture merge? Structured in four parts (Rustic, Geometric, Organic and Ecophysics), this is the question that the 2013 this publication intend to answer withe the authors and the projects of forty international architects, artists and designers currently at the forefront of scientific innovation.
