The modernist urgency of integration has evolved from sun, air, transportation, and advanced construction techniques to search histories, precarious labor contracts, machine learning, and burnout remedies.

Becoming Digital is a collaboration between e-flux Architecture and Ellie Abrons, McLain Clutter, and Adam Fure of the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
