There is a focus on new paradigm shift towards design computing. The digital media tends to offer a symbiosis of methods in the creation of architectural design. Architects search for new forms of creative expression. Their design process comes into scrutiny when it results in something extra-ordinary. There is a probe in this direction only when the result is achieved outside normative practices ? then it is considered to be unique, magical and idiosyncratic. The latest developments in digital design provide an excellent insight for experimenting, Conceptualization and spatial analysis. Computing has attained a coveted status in architectural field. Digital technology is having a radical impact on architectural production, especially in the field of hybrid analysis.
Digital hybridization occupies the dominant segment that adopts best practices in architectural design. Architects of the century endorse the mandatory digital hybrid- techniques and implement them in their design. An excellent ambience has been created due to the existence of an active collaboration between architectural design and digital technology. Innumerable modes of he digital media are catalysts of a global village interconnecting fields associated with architectural design. The fresh spell of updated 3D soft wares and revised digital infrastructure has helped regain the significance in design solutions.
Digital Hybridization: - the concept
As the power shift from material culture to media culture accelerates, architecture finds itself in the midst of a clash between centuries old analog design methods (such as tracing paper, vellum, graphite, ink, chipboard, clay, balsa wood, plastic, metal, etc.) and the new digital systems of production (such as scanning, video capture, image manipulation, visualization, solid modeling, computer aided drafting, animation, rendering, etc.). It is necessary to pro-actively incorporate the emerging digital world into our traditional analog work. It means to change. Media space is presented and used as an interpretive playground for design experimentation in which the poetics of representation (and not its technicalities) are the driving force to generate architectural ideas.
The mixture of old and new methodology in the architectural arena, creates Digital hybrids, where the computer is used as neither a tool or a muse, but where analogue solutions are introduced by scanning or by other means and integrated into the computer drawing to achieve interesting results.
Integrating computers in architectural design means to negotiate between centuries-old analogue design methods and the new digital systems of production. Recent investigations on the use of multiple iterations between manual and electronic systems to advance architectural work show promising results. The architectural movement plays with changes in-Form, Place, Perception & Medium. This movement spreads out in different directions - which may exist alongside one another, in juxtaposition or united as hybrids. It means the revolutionary introduction of the principles of theoretical design into practical architecture.
