This book reconsiders the relationship between architectural representation and architectural artefact particularly in the fields of responsive and adaptive architectures. The notion of the Persistent Model reconfigures this predominantly linear relationship into one that is circular, such that the ideal (representation) is tempered by the actual (built) to become both a record and the ground for iteration and transformation.
The book: defines, frames and grounds the notion of the persistent model and the activity of persistent modelling identifies and reports upon significant shifts in practice where relationships between representation and artefact are emerging speculates upon further implications of Persistent Modelling for architectural practice. Featuring contributions from some of the world'¬"s most advanced thinkers on this subject, this is essential reading for anyone considering new ways of thinking about the digital within architecture.
