In the last decades, the far-reaching diffusion of electronic data processing instruments seems to have supplanted traditional methods of manual drawing and three-dimensional architectural model making. The capturing, planning and visualization of objects and buildings appears to be positively dominated by digital technologies and semi-automatic production methods, ranging from parametric and algorithmic modelling systems and digital recording tools to interactive animations and automatic 2D and 3D printing.
In view of these extensive and pervasive technological developments which appear to highlight an epochal and seemingly irreversible change, the question arises as to whether these new means of representation also reveal an inherent change in the forms of knowledge or, rather, if they do not simply adopt manual and conceptual conventions derived from the architectural drawing tradition. Notably, in the context of construction sites, the communication between the executing and the planning party continues to be linked to the graphical projection, following practices that have been essentially unchanged for centuries.
