Critical review of studies on the representation of architecture and use of the image in science and art


“XY digital" is an active and dynamic container of accredited information, selected in the belief that the deepening of knowledge is based on intelligent comparison between different disciplines. It is the right place to exchange ideas concerning the new frontiers of project design, the relationship between graphic science and the multiple fields of knowledge and the connections between visual studies and cognitive processes.
