This title of AD heralds a new era of exuberance in digital design.Having overcome the alienation and otherness of the cyber, havingmastered the virtual qualities and protocols of the parametric,having achieved the intricacy and elegance of the digital, andhaving fully embraced the potential of 3d computer software andcad/cam manufacturing technologies, it is now time for architectsto show off!

Conjure up the extravagance of furniture design, the abundanceof cgi in Hollywood, the profuseness of bio-techno ornamentation orthe lavishness of Middle-Eastern and Asian super-urbanism.Exuberance not only celebrates new Baroque theatricality, formalsophistication and digital virtuosity; it also debates a plethoraof joyful and intelligent ways in which experimental architecturemanages to cope with the contemporary turmoil in global politics,economics and ecology.
