Between Materials

In this lecture, the design-to-realisation thinking and processes of key projects along that period will be unfolded through an interplay between analog and digital means. Can a pencil sketch be substituted by Artificial Intelligence (AI) design processes? And ultimately; Can architecture with aesthetic values emerge through merely digital workflows?
