title The Codewriting Workbook: Creating Computational Architecture in AutoLISP
source Princeton Architectural Press, New York
summary 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.
