Recent developments in digital design have brought new tectonic freedom into architecture. These innovative forms break away from the traditional or modernistic framework. In turn, they often relate to contemporary developments in other design disciplines, such as product design. Emerging tectonic trends, combined with research into new material and fabrication technologies, make it possible to purse imaginative designs that were not possible a decade ago. While digital tools allow for a broader architectural reading, resulting in innovative and unique designs and new expectations regarding space and form, these emerging designs often exist exclusively as visual propositions, deprived of a deeper structural, constructional, or functional logic.
