Digital design and fabrication are mainstream practice in architectural design. Nevertheless, there seems to be a gap in the way architects manipulate computer-based tools and the way these processes are articulated in architectural theory. More often than not, the integration of architecture and digital technologies happens only on an instrumental level, where digital is associated with making the design and construction process more efficient. In this project, I propose to critically study the relationship of architecture and technology as organisers of space.The principal goal of this project is to offer a framework for an informed and productive discussion about the role of computation in design and production of architectural experiences. As a first step towards understanding the role of computation in producing architectural artefacts and their experience, I propose the use of classical interpretation and text mining on a combined corpus of architectural discourse in academia and in social media. The project explores how the challenge of organising a discourse that addresses computational process in architectural design could be delegated to computation. These steps will be complemented by a continuous lecturing activity in the form of seminars on architecturality, which will be held every semester as part of the Architecture Theory department curriculum. By developing the language that describes the convergences of architecture and computation, the outcomes of this project will help architects and theoreticians to discuss computational processes and outputs in a more informed and productive way. Next to this, the project contributes to a clarity in the transfer of computational concepts into the realm of the design of spaces, which can be described as digital literacy.
