Datascape changes the way we design, the shift from 2D computer tools to more complex systems such as BIM. We’re constantly optimizing design, which has led to the emergence of a new trend in architecture.
But it also creates a lot of confusion; Datascape architecture is explained as architecture based on scientific research. Unlike the traditional design method, the goal is not only the finished work understood as a building but also the theory that brings the building into being.
What happens to the architect when the Datascape takes over? The Datascape method does not diminish the role of an architect, but it does change the character. A Datascape makes decisions in the design process, determines the importance of specific parameters and direction of the process flow, and specifies the preliminary design characteristics. But will never affect the results of intermediate analyses, thanks to the architect’s knowledge and experience, to oversee the design’s progress of the Datascape.
Datascape development never stands still; technical developments make more and more possible. For example, the process of development of design as impartial scientific experimentation. The knowledge gained in the investigations ensures that the design method is more conscious of the architect.
