Good introduction into ideas and processes related to generative design and modeling. Published June 1st by Routledge first published January 1st This unique volume challenges the reader to tackle all these complex questions and more.

Mekawy marked it as to-read Mar 31, Ben added it Aug 31, With each passing chapter, I craved a sentence that would have been formulated thus: We all used them in school, but there seemed to be a lack of theoretical rigor in the discussions we had – I don’t think anyone had both areas of expertise.

The implication for design at least early in the book is that seeking the radically new or novel is futile in the face of a deterministic and causal universe…to caricature: At the outset, he presents many structural supports on aarchitecture to frame his argument, but little actual architecture.
