title The interdependence of linear and circular causality in CAAD research: a unified model
source Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Hong Kong 7-10 April 2010, pp. 609-618
summary This paper discusses the relationship between linear and circular conceptions of causality and questions the common mutually-exclusive bivalent logic applied in distinguishing them. It argues that (circular) conversation and (linear) control both have their place in the design process. This calls for open minds and a reconsideration of value systems in CAAD practice and research, without which CAAD remains the futile attempt to deploy techniques developed to identify and enforce linear causation for the benefit of a practice that depends upon circular causality.
