The adoption of digital technologies has been slow and un-even in the Profession of Architecture despite their advantages in efficiency, quality, and access to creative languages that are not available otherwise.

Black Spectacles’ mission is to advance the creative potential of the profession of architecture by giving everyone access to all of the tools- in order to change the dialogue from “what tools are you using” to “what are you doing with the tools”.
