Sanmita presented a series of ideas about architecture’s evolving role in relationship to technology. Starting with classic pencil illustrations of the Crystal Palace, a modular structure erected in 1851 from wood, iron and glass, we explored this monument to technology and expression its age. Sanmita talked about how architecture has evolved with technology and continues to do so.
Technology provides opportunity to future trends that will affect the business of architecture over the next 20 years; it addresses factors including globalization, climate change, the growing use of computers. Today, physical location is less relevant as a designer.
