3rd Annual International Conference on Architecture, Atina, Greece, 10 - 13 June 2013
Scientific and technological developments in the 20th century have
become inseperable parts of every field and moment in life. These
developments have a strong influence on the last century’s and today’s
The alteration that emerged after the 19th century Industrial Revolution
hadn’t understood sufficiently yet, in 1960’s the second Industrial Revolution
was made happened by the rapidly growing technology. This revolution is
based on silicon chips. Due to chips and microchips computers become
widespread and portable.
Computer technology has influenced architecture considerably. In 1980’s
personal computers became widespread and computer usage became very
important in architecture. So computer-aided design and drawing programmes
were developed by the big software companies.
The Electronic Revolution and computers are not only a technological
changing, but also shows an alteration of our tecnological senses. This
changing is as important as the ones that happened in the beginning of
Renaissance and just before the first Industrial Revolution. These alterations
have both changed the architectural design methods and men’s view of design
and production and even the understanding of the world.
It is apparent that the computer changes the structure of knowledge
radically. So the architectural thought has changed by the terms like speed,
machine, mobility, …etc. In this research, the alteration in architecture has
made by Electronic Revolution since 1960’s is analysed.
