summary This paper reports on ongoing research investigating applications and methodologies for algorithms and artificial intelligence within urban design. Although the research recognises not all design is numerically quantifiable, it posits that certain aspects are. It provides evidence of algorithmically derived solutions-in many cases-being as good as those developed by a design professional. I situate the research within a series of examples of design quantification and description. Before discussing practical implementations of algorithmic spatial planning by the co-work start-up WeWork. These projects demonstrate an ongoing narrative to establish spatial syntactical rules for building and urban design. Finally, the paper reports on original research that aims to apply algorithmic space planning to urban design. A work-in-progress, at this stage the finding report on our methodology, preliminary implementation of an algorithmic strategy. It finally presents emerging data pointing to what might happen if the sector does not embrace algorithms and AI.
