ACADIA 2000: Eternity, Infinity and Virtuality in Architecture, Volume 1
Mark J. Clayton, Guillermo P. Vasquez de Velasco
Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture, 2002 - Philosophy - 284 pages
Eternity, time without end, infinity, space without limits and virtuality, perception without constraints; provide the conceptual framework in which ACADIA 2000 is conceived. It is in human nature to fill what is empty and to empty what is full. Today, thanks to the power of computer processing we can also make small what is too big, make big what is too small, make fast what is too slow, make slow what is too fast, make real what does not exist, and make our reality omni-present at global scale. These are capabilities for which we have no precedents. What we make of them is our privilege and responsibility.
