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 many diverse disciplines. Architecyure, this book presents many, various and often seemingly disparate points of view that lead to the establishment of one common theme; algorithmic architecture.

Algorithmic Architecture

Preview — Algorithmic Architecture by Kostas Terzidis. On the one hand, if you accept his claim that the computer can handle a mode of thought completely foreign and atchitecture to humans, you must dispense to a certain degree with the notion of purely human agency within the design process.

However, whereas the later two classic works of fiction approach abstraction in a lively and poetic manner — sometimes morphing contradiction into fleeting insight — Algorithmic Architecture contradicts itself in much more confounding fashion….
