summary The proliferation of the computer as a digital design tool in architecture has allowed for the previously impossible rapid investigation of complex forms. Architects and students are borrowing ideologies and methodologies from other disciplines and utilizing computational resources in an attempt to generate unique form. This reliance on outside disciplines, while producing fascinating results, fails to consider the phenomenal properties of architecture achieved through the realization of the physical. Through a merging of these borrowed techniques from other fields and the traditional notion of architect as builder, two seemingly disparate conditions can be synthesized—ideally producing architecture that responds to questions of our surroundings and ultimately proposes new solutions to these questions.
