IT Enhanced Environments
Lifetime design with the aid of Technology, may transform spaces into vibrant living units that boost self-esteem and self-conception. Technology is a precious tool if used accordingly. The significant contemporary technological advances have broken new grounds in the Design Process, the Materials Technology, the Construction Methods, and Post-Design Occupancy through Proximity Metrics and Data that measure the Performance of the User-Building System. They have also enhanced the threefold relationship between the architect, the client and the project.
We as architects should have the control over these tools, know their attributes in detail and master their use. Technology has modified our lives completely by providing convenience and by simplifying daily tasks and duties. It is important to embrace these advancements and embody them to our design in an inclusive way.
