Architecture’s Brave New Digital World

John Tolva is working to make a leader in digital urbanism. Image of © Brad Wilke via Flickr

“Increasingly we experience cities mediated by digital technology — whether that’s via smartphone maps, digital transit signage, or texting a friend that you’ve arrived at a destination. How our city is built to support residents, businesses, and visitors [...] is now part physical and part digital.”

John Tolva, the Chief Technology Officer for the City of Chicago, is on a mission: a mission to bring the physical and digital worlds into conversation.

To embed more and more digital information into the physical world, a growing number of digital specialists are beginning to embrace the worlds of architects, planners and urbanists. But, so far, it has not been a two way street to make the digital leap.

Antoni Gaudí (1852 -1926), the Catalán architect best known for his imaginative style, inspired by the curves and shapes found in nature, and – of course – for his inimitable masterpiece, the unfinished Sagrada Familia, would have turned 161 today.

Remember this unique architect’s work by revisiting his works on ArchDaily: Casa MilaCasa Batlló, Colonia Guell, and Park Guell

Happy Birthday Antoni! Per molts anys Antoni!
