If the key to sustainable transformation is in the design process – what benefits do ICT tools bring? This is the central question addressed in the book by researchers and architects in the Nordic Region. Together they have developed and implemented digital tools in real design processes for three years. The capabilities of the tools include how design decisions effect CO2 emissions, how rainwater will flow in a landscape design and how to address social sustainability in a systematic way. Solutions for refurbishment projects are also presented in a simple and beautiful manner. New ideas that would not have flourished without the flow of evidence and documentation between practice and academia. The power of the technological maelstrom is enchanting, almost dangerously so. This book illustrates how, critically tempered and harnessed, it may join the quest for the true essence of architecture.
