Technological choices give us ways to bridge the gap between the technical and the cultural, immersing one within the other. This immersion creates a platform for innovation. The techniques that people generate through their use of technology exert pressure on technical refinement and enfold those refinements within culture. Technological choices define a world within which specific alternatives of uses emerge, and they define a subject who chooses among those alternatives. In the making of the world through technology, we simultaneously enact great cultural change. In order for architecture to remain relevant in the future and create a critique of the present it must operate within technology, developing technological practices and design methods that become intrinsic to technology as opposed to applying it to a previously conceived design. The scope and significance of this is potentially enormous. Asset Architecture 3 attempts to illustrate some of the concepts, directions, and practices that have taken on this challenge.

Ali Rahim, editor, is a full professor at PennDesign where he directs the Advanced Architecture Design Program. He is also Director of Contemporary Architecture Practice in New York and Shanghai, an award-winning practice for futuristic work using digital techniques for the design and manufacturing of architecture.
