"For the tasks which face the human apparatus of perception at the turning points of history cannot be solved by optical means, that is, by contemplation, alone." BENJAMIN Walter, "The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction" (1936)

Information Revolution: New Paradigms in Architecture?
•    globalisation of avantgarde architecture
•    globalisation of logistics and division of labor
•    globalisation of "hit list architecture"
•    upscaling of the range of architectural projects
•    decoupling of cultural traditions
•    economy(-ies) of scale
•    eragmentation of  formerly continous processes
•    decoupling von refinement and responsibility in production and realisation

...
...
--> have become possible by digitalisation on all levels of architectural production.
(What levels, which processes exactly?)

What cannot be digitised (without effort -- or can it?):
Intellectual concepts: ...
Emotional concepts: ...
--> EVIDENCE!

Subversive?
--> "Guerilla Prototyping/Guerilla Manufacturing"

Extrapolation of observed developments (hyperbolic)--> evaluation?
Attributs of "architecture" and its production:
--> GOOD...???
--> BAD...???
