Pre-print: CITA Complex Modelling


We are happy to present a pre-print version of the Complex Modelling publication to be launched in early 2020. Complex Modelling is a framing project examining the infrastructures of advanced information modelling. It includes in-depth project descriptions of projects like Isoropia, Bridge Too Far, Hybrid Tower, Stressed Skins, Inflated Restraint, Lace Wall and The Rise as well as a presentation of the broad array of speculation that follow the projects in the form written essays as well as speculative probes.
The book is published by Riverside Press, to be launched in Spring 2020.
