Emerging Digital World

Human beings have always invented and made use of new technologies, from simple hand tools to the most complex digital devices of today. In this sense, the history of the development of humanity can be told through the successive industrial revolutions. As we enter into the Fourth Industrial Revolution at a breakneck speed, we can see that the ubiquitous presence of digital technologies is having ramifications in all areas of our daily lives. This process will have special relevance in terms of how we design and construct buildings, fabricate objects and deal with the complex urban issues that we face now and in the future.
