Archaeology of the Digital: Complexity and Convention is an exhibition that dissects and reassembles material from fifteen seminal architecture projects from the 1990s and 2000s according to five themes: high-fidelity 3D, structure/cladding, data, photorealism and topography/topology. A close look at this material shows how innovative design strategies from the recent past have now become convention.
The exhibition is the third in the Canadian Centre for Architecture’s (CCA) Archaeology of the Digital program, in which twenty-five projects have been collected, researched, catalogued and published.
