The paper compares the implications of glitch aesthetics as an alternative digital design process to the more the commonly used algorithmic processes. It will argue the synthetic nature of architectural production in the digital age is used typically to privilege the representation of form through lines and curves, while the production of glitches rely on the image. This reliance on the image means that the pixel comes to the forefront as a possible new medium of architectural drawing. This paper therefore aims to outline the advantages and problems with using ‘glitches’ within architectural production.
