title Algorithmic Design: A Paradigm Shift in Architecture?
source Architecture in the Network Society [22nd eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-2-4] Copenhagen (Denmark) 15-18 September 2004, pp. 201-207
summary This paper inquires into the nature of computation as a conceptual source of design. Algorithms are used, not to enhance architectural designs, but rather to conceive them. Such a possibility departs for the dominant assumption that design is entirely conceived within the designer’s mind. If true, it may constitute a paradigm shift in architecture.
