    Resumé

    The relationship between representation and the represented is examined here through the notion of persistent modelling. This notion is not novel to the activity of architectural design if it is considered as describing a continued active and iterative engagement with design concerns – an evident characteristic of architectural practice.

    But the persistence in persistent modelling can also be understood to apply in other ways, reflecting and anticipating extended roles for representation. This book identifies three principle areas in which these extensions are becoming apparent within contemporary practice: the duration of active influence that representation can hold in relation to the represented; the means, methods and media through which representations are constructed and used; and what it is that is being represented.

    Featuring contributions from some of the world’s most advanced thinkers on this subject, this book makes essential reading for anyone considering new ways of thinking about architecture.
    In drawing upon both historical and contemporary perspectives this book provides
    evidence of the ways in which relations between representation and the represented continue to be reconsidered. It also provides critical insight into the use of contemporary modelling tools and methods, together with an examination of the implications their use has within the territories of architectural design, realisation and experience.
