The role of new technologies in contemporary architecture

The ethics of construction often coincide with sustainability and the application of rules and principles that can guide architectural practice towards a more attentive use of resources, lower environmental impact, more harmonious relations with the setting and greater attention on wellbeing and quality of life. But is it enough for ethics in architecture to coincide with a focus on environmental issues and compliance with legislation in this regard? This book sets out to examine the role of new digital technologies and the emergence of alternative solutions related to developments in contemporary scientific and philosophical thinking, in relation not only to linguistic and aesthetic decisions, but above all to the ethical implications of the effects these entail.
