As part of the multi-year research, acquisition, and exhibition project Archaeology of the Digital, the CCA launched a digital publication series in 2014 consisting of small monographs of each of the twenty-five projects chosen by curator Greg Lynn for their contributions to the foundations of digital architecture.
The use of computers in the twenty-five projects had formative implications for various aspects of the architectural discipline—from parametrics to interactivity, from media to fabrication and construction, from geometry to now finally publication. The publications are project specific and present interviews between Greg Lynn and the architects along with visuals that include raster images, vector drawings, video and animations, audio, and digital 3D models. As ePub technology evolves, the series advances the boundaries of architectural publishing.
Including interviews with Ben van Berkel, Johan Bettum, Bernard Cache, Karl Chu, Lise Anne Couture, Neil Denari, Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Enric Ruiz-Geli, Mark Goulthorpe, Chuck Hoberman, Sulan Kolatan, Ulrich Königs, Bill Mac Donald, Thom Mayne, Farshid Moussavi, Kas Oosterhuis, Christos Passas, Mónica Ponce de León, Wolf Prix, Hani Rashid, Jesse Reiser, François Roche, Patrik Schumacher, Preston Scott Cohen, Kivi Sotamaa, Lars Spuybroek, Nader Tehrani, Peter Testa, Nanako Umemoto, Devyn Weiser, Shoei Yoh, and Alejandro Zaera-Polo.
The series was published with the generous support of the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
