title Conditioning Elegance: A Design Experiment on Intuition and Analysis
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 467-478
summary This paper offers an assessment of two methods for design, one based on intuitive design skills, the other on design decision based on feedback from analysis. The author is interested in the students’ perception of the process requirements within two different rule-based systems. The project, given within a class on biologically inspired design, demands a design solution that operates on two layers: the first being “function” the second “aesthetics”: students were asked to resolve a column, while designing for “Elegance”. Their work focused on an elegant building component without compromising structural efficiency. The results are discussed as indicators of possibly integrating analysis tools in creative processes and also understanding different learning paradigms for students.
