Assembling a framework derived from Borges, T. S. Eliot, and Louis Sullivan, D2A reflects on current architectural works as they illuminate the past and present, demonstrating digital architecture’s position in a historical continuum.

D2A surveys analog and digital conceptualization, visualization, and production as they relate to architecture and design—the generation and transference of design ideas, the recognition of computer-aided-visualization (CAV), the placeness of digital space, and the developing relationship of computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) to architecture.

Presenting Gehry and the historic Catalan architect, Jujol, in a fictional exchange, D2A next observes Miralles, Calatrava, Vasulka, and Ito as pioneers across the turn of the 20th into the 21st century as well as across the digital divide. D2A then concentrates on architects who formulate digital strategies based on differing qualities and capabilities of software, thereby illustrating conditions from which digital architecture emerges.

Looking to current research—including a view to e-space and online worlds as they emerge electronically in game space and physically in places such as Las Vegas, D2A focuses on architecture and research that bypasses traditional means of conceptualization and production to visualize and produce projects electronically, as seeded by technology, science, expropriated history, and new as well as established theory.

D2A closes with a series of eleven case studies contemplating architects Duncan Brown, Greg Lynn, Objectile, and Marcos Novak as creators whose partnerships with electronics seek to designate e-space as a site of new architecture, a new workplace for full production and/or new philosophical understanding of place, building, visualization, and design.
