Week 2: Welcome

Hi all, here is our Week 2 materials. This week we look at historical background of digital architecture to be able to scrutinise the proliferation of digital design tools. I have compiled decade-by-decade key events and influential figures. It is hoped that once we looked backward we will understand how designer can tap into potentials of technology in the past, to be able to critically inform the future.

There is no embedded audio in this week’s material:
