(New) Media Facades: Architecture and/as a Medium in Urban Context

Milica Stojšić

Abstract


Besides representing a border dividing interior and exterior spaces, one of the primary functions of the facade is communication. What used to be inscribed in stone, concrete, wood or glass, is now communicated via digital media, which became an integral part of architecture in the information society we live in today. Even though this research includes an investigation of media-supported facades as architectural elements, a much broader discourse oriented toward relational aesthetics in urban spaces will be employed in order to analyze the new media potential of communication layers in architecture.
