title A Fractal Studio
source Integrating Computers into the Architectural Curriculum [ACADIA Conference Proceedings] Raleigh (North Carolina / USA) 1987, pp. 169-182
summary The experience of using computer aided architectural design tools in a second year graduate studio is presented. These tools had to be developed as the search for design solutions evolved. The computer has been used for the exploration and generation of architectural forms and very little as a drafting/rendering machine. The generative algorithms were based on fractal geometries, arabesque ornamentations, DNA/RNA biological processes' etc. The design problem was a Biological Research Complex. The whole experience raised some interesting pedagogical questions, which are also discussed.
