title The Use of Tools in the Creation of Form: Frank (L. Wright & O. Gehry)
source Reinventing the Discourse - How Digital Tools Help Bridge and Transform Research, Education and Practice in Architecture [Proceedings of the Twenty First Annual Conference of the Association for Computer-Aided Design in Architecture / ISBN 1-880250-10-1] Buffalo (New York) 11-14 October 2001, pp. 044-051
summary This paper is a study of shape, attempting to understand the effect of Computer Aided Architecture Drafting and Design on the Geometry of Form. This is a part of a larger question: When the tool of presentation changes, does the form generated change as well? The study is in two main parts: 1 Comparing two Guggenheim Museums. 2 Re-Modeling Bilbao Museum. The final questions are: why does form become more complex? How do architects use tools to obtain more complexity? What Computer Aided Architecture Design programs let architects achieve more complexity? For an architect, is the motivation to demonstrate a set of 3D geometric operations sufficient to generate complex assemblies, and are there other possible operations needed?
