Digital cosmetics, what is architecture?

TV was like a City; the city is turning into a TV.

Surrounded by examples of digitalized life, architecture has been trying to insert visual (and not so visual) parameters on its design process from long time ago.
The deep gap between serious investigations and visual arts (and the weak support given to interdisciplinary working platforms) has caused the achievement of mostly cosmetic interventions, not real digital infrastuctures. Nowadays, when the digital wave is decreasing, we are starting to see examples of real media structures.
As an unsorted but illustrative list of gazes to digital era, we can now talk about it as contemporary archeologies.
