title Probing Tool Use in the Practice of Generative Design: A Postgraduate Design Workshop Report
source CAADRIA 2007 [Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Nanjing (China) 19-21 April 2007
summary This paper investigates whether generative design tools can perform their intended functions after being passed on from the contexts of their production to different application contexts similar to the way that other tools such as hammers or bicycles are. We report on a design studio application of two generative design tools and relate observed design processes and outcomes to our toolmaking intentions. Our findings suggest that, at least in the case of the examined tools and workshop, tool use in generative design tends to defy toolmaking intentions. We discuss the consequences for generative design toolmakers and conclude with some speculations on possible solutions.
