Digital technologies are undoubtedly affecting architecture and the built environment in unprecedented ways. In digitally designed architecture, computational design models capable of dynamic transformation are replacing the static norms of conventional processes favoring computationally generated complexities. This paper focuses on some of the reformations in the built environment from the epistemological lens of digital architecture, including the role that digital architecture might have on the types and forms of buildings and architectural spaces in the built environment. The manifestations of digital architecture on reforming the built environment, including the new paradigm of architectural forms, narrative and interactive spaces, digital tectonics, and digital fabrication, are articulated in this paper.
