DESIGN + COMPUTATION WORKSHOPS


Following an emerging trend in contemporary architecture subsumed under the notion "algorithmic architecture" or parametricism, a rule based logic inherent in programs is the generator of space, form in concert with materials. We see this as a kind of codification of the design intent via scripting languages or parametrics being part of 3D software packages.
