summary 
Architecture has always relied on mathematics to achieve proportioned aesthetics, structural performance, and reasonable construction. Computational tools have now given architects the means to design and build spatial concepts that would have been inconceivable even ten years ago. Against this background the paper discusses an educational approach that focuses on the early integration of computational principles, regarding the definition of geometry as well as material and fabrication parameters to inform the architectural design. Three case studies illustrate the interdisciplinary approach, conceived and carried out jointly by the Department of Architecture and the Department of Mathematics.
