1 THE ‘PINK NOISE’ OF DESIGN ENGINEERING 32-33 2 DIGITAL TO POST-DIGITAL Design Engineering Refocused By Hanif Kara and Daniel Bosia Copyright © 2016 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. DANIEL BOSIA From the work of Pier Luigi Nervi, Buckminster Fuller and Frei Otto (Figure 1), we have learned how research into natural systems with a ‘scientific’ approach can generate new and unexpected expressions in architecture, promoting a deeper dialogue between the worlds of art and science. The work of these three pioneers remained rather tangential to the Modernist and Post-Modernist movements in architecture, whose focus was the development of stylistic and philosophical responses to the uncertainties of the first post-war period.

The designer or design team are masters of their digital tools, not slaves to pre-structured software packages; they are the creative ‘architects’ of hybrid, intuitive and rational processes to realise better and more holistic spaces for human habitation and fulfilment. 6 UNStudio, Arnhem Centraal station, Arnhem, the Netherlands, 1998. The central support to the roof of the Arnhem station consists of an extension of the surface to the concourse level and platform level in the form of a mathematical Seifert surface.

The work of these three pioneers remained rather tangential to the Modernist and Post-Modernist movements in architecture, whose focus was the development of stylistic and philosophical responses to the uncertainties of the first post-war period. It was through the work of engineers such as Ove Arup that the discipline of engineering started to influence architecture on a global scale. Arup understood the importance of ‘total architecture’, the integration of both disciplines. 1 2 1 Frei Otto, Mannheim Multihalle, Mannheim, Germany, 1975.
