Data_scape's are dynamic simulations based on the interrelation of three dimensional data graphics and time. These simulations, the programming of which initiate the conception process, introduce space and time as dynamic parameters in the conception process (4-dimension). This process allows a temporal visualisation of complex relations between parameters such as infrastructural flows or communication flows (n-dimension). This analysing method and simulation of complex phenomena establish a pragmatic and operational position of the architect who doesn't fix the structure in a given state in opposite to typological or formal approaches. These data driven environments gives the possibility to architects to anticipate >>>
