Architectural Manifesto – Dec, 2014

THE MANIFESTO

As human civilization advances, each era has been marked by its own history, culture, technology & science achievements, tools & method of labor, and architecture. We are now entering the age of digitalization and I believe that architecture is changing according to the rapid change of the society, and the change of tools & method of labor.  I believe that the evolution of our discipline would be CUSTOMIZATION, DIGITALIZATION & SOCIALIZATION. That would radically change both the process of how we do the work as well as the design artifact. New architecture forms & styles might be born and also the program of use would also change.
