content Processes of construction are related to available technologies of production and assembly. IT has made a deep impact on design possibilities and the control of production logistics enabling feats such as free-form architecture and increasingly precise elaboration. Alternately, the idea of Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing Technology provides the chance to create one-off components and elements for architecture. We now have the opportunity to design and construct without the disadvantages of production resistance and assembly needs to realize genuine IT-driven architecture.
