The technical possibilities afforded by computer-based imaging techniques increasingly blur the boundaries between image and representation. Frontal views of freely invented architectures, i.e. the products of imagination and intuition based on fragments of “real” architecture, will serve as examples.The buildings represented cannot really be ascribed to a particular era, function or even typology.
