Today, it is hard to imagine the everyday work in an architectural practice without computers. This title, published in the context of an exhibition of the same name at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, for the first time considers the development of the digital in architecture. Tracing this trend from its beginnings in the 1950s, it presents the computer as a drawing machine, as a design tool, as a medium for telling stories, and as an interactive communication platform.
