summary Contemporary digital architectural design is characterized by an understanding of geometry as logico-algebraic text out of which architectural form emerges through the manipulation of data. Such formalistic and operative utilization of geometry is ignoring the perceptive dimension of geometry. By looking at the etymological roots of mathematics another non-technical reading of geometry can be uncovered that relates geometry back to bodily experience and the question of spatial orientation. This opens up the question of orientation within computational geometry and re-introduces the body into contemporary discourse of architecture.
keywords Geometry and Perception; Orientation and the Body; Theory of Digital Design; Design Philosophy; Design Thinking
