title Simultaneous Translation in Design: The Role of Computer Programming in Architectural Education
source Architectural Computing from Turing to 2000 [eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9523687-5-7] Liverpool (UK) 15-17 September 1999, pp. 58-68
summary In this paper it is proposed that architectural design involves simultaneous translation between several different languages and their corresponding systems of notation. The process of educating architects involves teaching fluency in these systems both separately and together. To improve pedagogical efficiency the physical manifestation of the languages - the graphical product - should be separated from the continuous expression of ideas in these languages - the conversational process. Digital media offer the opportunity to learn the process of translation between these systems, and thus form a strong foundation for the ability to design. Here a course taught at MIT by the author is described whose central theme is the development of design process through the use of the intermediary system of notation of a procedural programming language.
