After introducing the concept of iA - by describing terms and processes like 'File to Factory' and 'real time behaviour' in the first issue - this second issue, with refresher material, delves deeper into the interactive relations between built components, between people and built components, and even between people. It also offers a more defined perspective on parametric design, power-lines, and multiplayer design games.
