Summary

After two decades of investment in virtual architecture, the authors reconsider dimension in architectural theory and practice. Long removed now from the economic exuberance and capitalism-induced megalomania of an S,M,L,XL approach to scale, and facing everywhere the manifestations of the unintended consequences of relentless globalization on our social, cultural, and physical environments, Dimension explores what effects digital production has had on issues of dimension, and how dimension defines new design and fabrication techniques; what economic, political, and environmental factors influence dimension and its effects. How does an approach to dimension help architects respond to global population crises, urban and suburban conditions- as well as to the architectural detail? What is the dimension of today's architecture? Dimension surveys this interest in the data, design, and invention resultant from the act of measurement and definition in architectural design practice and theory today.
