The discipline of architecture reflects its era and cultural context. While in the passage from Renaissance to Modernism and the current period architecture’s role has been to serve humanistic-related priorities, the techniques being employed to produce it and consequently the ways such priorities have been met are manifestations of the technological innovations that characterise each time. Further to this observation, new paradigms may be drawn to outline a viable future for the discipline, and new visions may emerge from technologies related to computation to inform new strategies about planning, alternative socio-urban modes of co-habitation and environmental challenges often of no prior historical reference.
