Architectonic manifestations in Interior Design through digital thinking

The DRP focuses on understanding form and aesthetics through an in-depth study of
distinct tectonic territories within architecture and interior design; from antiquity to its
contemporary modes of existence. This then leads to speculations around it's possible
evolution, manifestations and audiences through thinking with digital mediums and tools.
Architects and designers use digital tools intensively, primarily as a tool for management
and to aid productivity. However, digital tools can offer many new ways of thinking,
rather than simply a tool for efficiency. The DRP is interested in exploring digital tools as
a conceptual device rather than a technical one. We will break away from an archaic
notion that "plan is the generator of form", where form is created through orthographic
projections towards thinking about opportunities that are not possible through these
traditional means.
