Creation Versus Simulation Synthesis Versus Analysis
Approaches to Computer Aided Architectural Composition [ISBN 83-905377-1-0] 1996, pp. 119-132
The paper presents the work in progress: formal experiments in computer modelling, accenting a certain shift approaching the computer - creation, not just modelling (simulating). Two main approaches to architectural computing are formulated: creative and simulative, where computer creation involves and enables quick formal synthesis, and where simulation requires analysis. The attention is paid on creation. This paper as well as the research project on abstract modelling is sponsored from the Polish Committee of Scientific Research.
