Research of Information and Computer Technology on Architecture

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 205)


Today, architecture has changed greatly than before. What make the change, how to make the change, and the change itself are three main problems in this study. To make them clear can make architecture more meet the demand of people or society and also benefit the development of architecture and technology. The research started with architectural aesthetic, function, designing process and constructing process. Through analysing some special architecture, the study exemplified some details of the changing. Moreover, the study also expressed relationship between architectural theories and technology development. At last, the study summarized technologies themselves. On the basis of the study, the cause and the direction of the changing get clearer. The technology is catalyst to make architecture cut across traditional institutional limits. As a result, the study turns out combining architecture with the two kinds of technologies closely should be a potential direction to the future of architecture.
