Where is the revolution then?It is argued that despite its early manifestations, information technology promises to become a revolutionary, rather than evolutionary development for the profession and practice of architecture. This also means that there is a need for further exploration and development of this revolution is necessary.Also discussed are the implications for the professional base and the likely problems by this “too fast” a revolution.However it is worth noting at the outset about the methodology that there is a danger of bias in peoples and academics view and it is a wait and see situation to actually observe digital architecture at its zenith and then judge its revolutionary value.Finally both the primary and secondary research has raised concerns about the ability to measure “revolution” in terms of digital architecture and how this is holding the digital industry back from being recognised as a discipline in its own right. For the future qualitative research is needed in this area to assess this issue in greater depth.
This dissertation aims to explore how technological evolutions have not only caused social, political and cultural revolutions in the past but continue to do so especially in the field of architectural design. Essentially it is evident from the modern conventions of architecture that the traditional gap between drawing and building is non existent now and throughout my research paper I have explored the idea that digital design and digital fabrication are now evident of “seamless production” rather than creative transformation all of which was the conventional perception of architectural practice.
It has been argued academically that “Digital fabrication and computer numerically controlled (CNC) technologies” have affected “tectonic” architecture over the past several decades thus causing a

In the year 2000, the organization was initiated after merger of Bell Atlantic and General Telephone & Electronics Corporation (GTE). The organization is operated by means of three divisions namely ‘Telecom’, ‘Business’ and ‘Wireless’.
This paper discusses how information technology is still at the stage where it is developing after its advent a few decades ago in the form of computer-aided drafting and modeling. Where is the revolution then? It is argued that despite its early manifestations, information technology promises to become a revolutionary, rather than evolutionary development for the profession and practice of architecture.
One can unobtrusively perceive the relationship between the all round rapid development and the corresponding increase in the usage of computers technology, more often referred to as digital technology. The field of architecture has also displayed its increasing use of the digital technology for designing purposes since recent past and this has resulted in speeding up the process and the quality of design and construction as compared to the earlier period.
Construction across urban China that is providing unparalleled opportunities for foreign architects to fulfil their wildest dreams (Economist ed 2004 pp 63). This exposure to global architecture is partially due to the monetary gains, as large corporations in China are paying big money for foreign architects and construction (Moller 2004 p 1).
The speed is increased by the use of automatic fillets and chamfers […] CAD can enable companies to produce better designs that are almost impossible to produce manually and to eliminate dubious options during the
