Architecture and the roles of architects have had to change over the course of time in connection to innovations in the industry. Laurence Fishburne, an award-winning actor, will host a new "Information Matrix" episode on Innovation in Architecture that covers this very topic.

Architecture has evolved over the centuries. Historically, design and construction of buildings were normally undertaken by artisans until the 18th century where the role of an architect diverged and was undertaken by more skilled personnel.

Architecture is a field affected by the quickly changing spheres of technology, hence needs to meet the current market dynamics. Pre-construction drawings were initially produced by use of a pencil and paper but the innovations in the trade led to changes around the drawing board and the parallel motion was used. Further advancement of technology which led to the availability of computers led to more innovations and use of programs such as computer-aided design (CAD) which has led to the emergence of many design methodologies. Majority of architectural drawings are presently drafted by use of layers and polylines.

These changes have also led to the improvement of designs and levels of productivity, but have also helped further building initiatives that are environmentally conscious and efficient. The series will feature industry professionals who will speak about these topics on more in the episode.

The series "Information Matrix" meets television standards for public viewing and distribution. The information aired is highly authentic and reliable.
