summary In his work ‘Cybernetics’, mathematician Norbert Wiener (1941) pointed to the interdisciplinary areas between the sciences as a promising field for research; embracing this notion of ‘synthesis’ fifty years later, the research discussed here uses the cornice, a typical element of Classical Architecture as the role-model for a series of experiments with light and shadow in nurbs software. This process encourages the development of digital design methodologies that go beyond current stylistic boundaries and hopes to set a possible threshold towards future design-based exploration.
