title Searching for Computational Regionalism

summary This paper outlines a developing teaching and research pedagogy being developed at an educational institution in the United Arab Emirates that resists contemporary models of Computational Orientalism. The paper describes that exploring the space between Middle-Eastern material culture and contemporary computational design methodologies as generative, systemic, and adaptive conditions allows for the development of a material culture that is both local and driven by the computational zeitgeist. More specifically, the paper outlines the historical relevance of the computational spline and how it is being explored to develop a novel material culture through parametric models and physics-based systems.
