Abstract

Taking Colin Rowe’s contextualism as a starting point, this chapter focuses on the changing relationship between the architectural intervention and the ground, as well as the dematerialization of this relationship through the abstraction of digitally mediated context. Such an abstraction supports the transfer of design methods between design disciplines and ultimately fosters the convergence of computational design thinking between architecture, urban design, and landscape architecture. It is argued that this convergence of computational design thinking dissolves the difference between natural and manmade and provides the framework for design as a contextual figuration of the ground.
