||The Codewriting Workbook: Creating Computational Architecture in AutoLISP
||Princeton Architectural Press, New York
||Conceived as a primer for architects, artists and designers, The Codewriting Workbook
introduces students and practitioners to basic programming concepts for computeraided
design (CAD). Through a series of guided exercises using algorithmic functions,
readers learn how to develop and write procedures for two-dimensional drawings and
three-dimensional models. Each sequence of exercises starts with a simple concept and
evolves into a family of possible solutions, including specifying and exploring a wide
range of design alternatives, integrating parameters for controlling randomness, utilizing
meteorological data, and developing complex patterns for laser-cutting and CNC-milling.
Exercises are presented in AutoLISP, a widely accessible CAD programming environment.
