The implication of this position for design is that the computer or the algorithm ought not to be seen as an archotecture of man, but as a completely different intentional entity with which one collaborates. Consequently, this book presents many, various and often seemingly disparate points of view that lead to the establishment of one common theme; algorithmic architecture.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Why does the word design owe its origin to Latin and not Greek roots?

Following the tradition of architecture as a conglomeration of various design fields – engineering, theory, art, and recently, computation – the challenge of this book is to present a concept that, like architecture, is a unifying theme for terziris diverse disciplines.

ElumTools by Jack Chaffin. Zisis rated it really liked it Dec 08, For some readers, this might be new territory; to anyone who has already done any programming whatsoever, having variables, arrays and for loops explained again is unnecessary and a little comic wedged in the middle of a theoretical treatise on the role of computation in architecture.

So far, he has offered some pretty solid and common sense advice on how to go about it. Algorithmic Architecture by Kostas Terzidis. Andrew is currently reading it Apr 16, It is refreshing to hear an informed argument about computers in design.
