English: Example of replication of a real object by means of 3D scanning and 3D printing. The gargoyle model on the left was digitally acquired by using a 3D scanner and the produced 3D data was processed using MeshLab. The resulting digital 3D model, shown in the screen of the laptop, was used by a rapid prototyping machine to create a real resin replica of original object. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

History vs. TechKNOW
WEB architecture Technology has changed the age-old profession of architecture irrevocably. While this shift has not significantly altered our core role as designers, architecture has evolved from a document production business to an information Five years ago, the architecture profession saw some profound changes to the way we work that were in large part enabled by technology. Groundbreaking firms began to explore building information modelling and integrated project delivery as highly efficient ways of delivering services and giving more value to clients. Design modelling and 3-D printing allow limitless exploration of form. Imaging and visualization software make it possible to understand projects under any condition. management business. Analysis software lets us model complex building behaviour, including day lighting, environmental performance, structural performance, pedestrian flow, code compliance, and other systems.

Production of construction documents, once the primary deliverable, now becomes a report from the model. Increased accuracy and error checking before building in the field enhances the construction process. Workflows that deliver design information directly to fabrication create increased efficiency and provide savings of both time and money. Social media and videoconferencing connect us, shrinking time and space.
