Abstract


The setting of design and architectural realization today cannot be considered separately from the emerging architecture, which is based on digital technology. Digital technology has primarily affected the architectural presentation, and eventually began to represent a design tool directly connected with the realization, which was across various digital techniques establishing continuity of a „digital gap“ as a global problem of discontinuity of design and realization in architecture and fulfilling complex design requirements of the architecture today.  With the characteristics of continuous connection, this relation design - realization is increasingly manifested as a CАAD/CAM technology and the most commonly researched as a „digital chain“ principle. Primarily, the term „digital chain“ is defined and investigated (theoretically, experimentally and practically) at the CAAD department at ETH Zurich (germ. ETH Zuerich) within the research projects of this institute. Today the tool has become an indispensable, inevitable and active, and the architect seemingly passive and in an unclear position in the whole process and the offered solutions of space and architecture. Accordingly, the paper explains the principle of "digital chain", and overlapping with elements of a conventional (standard) architectural approach, based on the settings of the positioning architects in new conditions, redefines the process of design and realization in the emerging architecture in architectonic sense.
