Arquitectura, Datos y Forma: Una primera aproximacion instrumental. [Architecture, data and form: A first instrumental approach]

The production of forms via iterative computational processes allows designers to operate on datasets that would be to large to be managed via traditional analog methods. This fact opens the door to new aesthetic and formal experimentation as well as attempts to reference or influence large scale phenomena such as geographical or network based sitatuations. This document presents the results of a series of investigations into the creation of algorithmic and parametric methods or instruments that could inform architectural practice. The work was done by the authors within the Masters of Architecture Program of the Catholic University of Chile.
