This framework helps to account for a ‘Mass Innovation’, made of incremental changes brought about by the development and introduction of digital control systems in buildings, or information and communication systems within construction processes, other new social meanings and requirements, generally of new awareness of human being on the potentialities of knowledge, of its sharing and its broad diffusion. Through the text emerging technologies for innovation are identified: Customized Industrial Construction, underlying the idea to go from product choice versus design system. Digital Fabrication, an emerging way of approaching technology and fabrication. than fast and incredible changes due to Cloud and Information Technologies for architecture and construction, Materials on Demand due to chemical advancement, and Widespread Technology Transfer, just to mention some of them. Finally a glance is given to new trends like self-design and mini factories, on site robotics and augmented reality and inventive preservation.
