Where is the place of architecture? Closer to the arts or to the sciences? And has there been a shift of this position over the past years due to technological evolution?—The term “precision” serves as a starting point for observing the influence of scientific methods on architecture and art. Well-known authors explore the subject from different angles: from digital design strategies in lightweight construction to filigree architectural projects. Practical examples are flanked by essays on art and architectural theory, which also provide a prospect for the future of digitalization and cybernetics.
