Welchen Status hat die Architekturfotografie heute? Einerseits sorgen die Bilder für die massenhafte mediale Verbreitung von Bauwerken. Andererseits schaffen die Fotografinnen und Fotografen durch ihre Haltung, ihre Interessen und ihren Stil sehr individuelle Bilder dieser gebauten Wirklichkeit. Sie erzählen eigene Geschichten der Gebäude, entscheiden, ob sie diese belebt oder unbelebt in Szene setzen, inszeniert oder naturalistisch, mit oder ohne Kontext, als Neubau oder im Gebrauch. Welche Auswirkung hat dieser fotografische Blick auf die Vermittlung der Gebäude und ihrer Architekten? Viele Architekten verbindet eine langjährige Zusammenarbeit mit einzelnen Fotografen. Wie stark prägen mögliche Bilder schon den Entwurf? Welche Bilder schaffen Aufmerksamkeit, welche neue Blickwinkel? Gerade in Zeiten der Bilderflut, in der sich Fotos und Renderings scheinbar kaum mehr unterscheiden lassen, holt die Publikation den Beitrag der Architekturfotografie vor den Vorhang und ermöglicht gleichzeitig einen Blick hinter die Kulissen. In acht bildreichen Kapiteln werden die Beziehungen zwischen Architektur und Fotografie einem Sichtwechsel unterzogen. Die unterschiedlichen Positionen treten dabei in einen spannungsvollen Dialog. Erkenntnisgewinn und Schauvergnügen gehen Hand in Hand. Mit Essays von: Angelika Fitz, Elke Krasny, Gabriele Lenz und Philipp Ursprung Mit Fotografien von: Markus Bstieler, Peter Eder, Gisela Erlacher, Pez Hejduk, Eduard Hueber, Hertha Hurnaus, Markus Kaiser, Angelo Kaunat, Bruno Klomfar, Alexander Eugen Koller, Zita Oberwalder, Pia Odorizzi, Stefan Olah, Paul Ott, Lukas Schaller, Manfred Seidl, Margherita Spiluttini, Rupert Steiner, Dietmar Tollerian, Günter Wett

What is computer art? Do the concepts we usually employ to talk about art, such as ‘meaning’, ‘form’ or ‘expression’ apply to computer art? A Philosophy of Computer Art is the first book to explore these questions. Dominic Lopes argues that computer art challenges some of the basic tenets of traditional ways of thinking about and making art and that to understand computer art we need to place particular emphasis on terms such as ‘interactivity’ and ‘user’. Drawing on a wealth of examples he also explains how the roles of the computer artist and computer art user distinguishes them from makers and spectators of traditional art forms and argues that computer art allows us to understand better the role of technology as an art medium.

Was im Produktdesign A1/4blich ist, A1/4bernimmt nun auch die Architektur: Man entwirft FreiformflAchen, die nicht herkAmmlicher Geometrie entstammen, sondern mit spezieller High-End-Software entwickelt werden - und fA1/4hrt sie aus. Die ersten innovativen Bauten zeugen von der Experimentierfreudigkeit der jungen BA1/4ros, in den USA verAchtlich "Blobmeister" genannt. Elf Beispiele zeigen, dass CyberkA1/4nstler keine realitAtsfernen TrAumer sind, sie machen aber auch die Macht des Faktischen bei der "Feuertaufe des Bauens" deutlich. Zahlreiche Darstellungen von der Entwicklung der EntwA1/4rfe und Modelle A1/4ber Werkstattaufnahmen und Baustellenbilder dokumentieren den komplexen Weg hin zu den fertiggestellten Bauwerken. Thematische Essays geben einen Einblick in die Geschichte des "Blob," seine bisherigen EinflA1/4sse auf die architektonische Kultur sowie einen Ausblick auf zukA1/4nftige Entwicklungspotentiale. Eine beigefA1/4gte CD-ROM zeigt die dynamischen Darstellungen.
