Architect is a verb, not a noun. Architects used to design
: buildings, interiors, plans, landscapes, objects. But that was before the internet.
As digital technologies became ever more pervasive, the verb to architect
was introduced by software designers to define the structuring of information systems. Never fully accepted by architects themselves, to architect
may sound odd, yet it fits the complexity of organizing today’s life – cities and interfaces, bricks as well as software.
In this research we explore and frame the implications of architecting space and society through digital technologies. From decentralised technologies to civic platforms, Architecture After the Internet explores these shifts through a series of publications, events and projects.
