title Shape Grammars as a Method to Introduce Computational Thinking in Design - The case of tiles
source Werner, L and Koering, D (eds.), Anthropologic: Architecture and Fabrication in the cognitive age - Proceedings of the 38th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, TU Berlin, Berlin, Germany, 16-18 September 2020, pp. 693-702
summary For architects and other artists, shape grammars, that are part of the computational thinking concept, have been an effective initial tool of transition between the realm of design and the classic computer. The dissemination of computer science and its mindset is only possible when it is supported by adequate pedagogical processes. The presented paper demonstrates an adequate transposition of art solutions (part of tile panels by Athos Bulcao and Maria Keil) into a computational structure where innovative notations are defined in some aspects. To that end, it allows their implementation in the computer through a suitable programming language and uses those same notations to generate other solutions within the same universe of interest and research. Furthermore, an intellectual process is exposed allowing to structure the information, particularly regarding to form, to different frameworks, placing itself as an opportune methodological structure that can guide other similar experiences.
