summary The city of Lodz is bidding for hosting International EXPO in 2022. The proposed theme is "City Re:Invented". The paper presents the EXPO project experiment conducted at Lodz University of Technology in cooperation with Lodz City Council. The idea was to prepare design proposals for promotional purposes, first in the form of computer visualisations, then as physical scale mock-ups produced in a digital fabrication laboratory. It is planned that the best solutions would be adopted and built in 1:1 scale if Lodz received a nomination. The results of the project are illustrated in the paper by selected examples. The main aim of this study is to examine computational thinking as a design medium. The paper presents background studies in this regard. It also looks into the approach to articulate digital fabrication and robotics as not merely the methods of delivery of a final product but their role in a design process. It deliberates pros and cons of computational design and its influence on creativity. It concludes with a statement that computation may help to construct, reveal, enhance and develop logic in a creation process.
