A review of Antoine Picon’s new book, Digital Culture in Architecture, which in my opinion focuses too much on the superficial cultural outcomes of digital architecture without digging into the technical causes.
A summary of Mark Burry’s latest book, Scripting Cultures.
Eminent computer scientist Fred Brooks’s latest book, The Design of Design, reframes programming as a design discipline. In this post I consider what architects can learn from this relationship and from this book.
A fairly unfavourable review of Lars Spuybroek’s book, The Architecture of Continuity.
William Mitchell’s The Logic of Architecture is considered seminal to computational design. In this post I put forward the argument that it was actually far from perfect and that the holes in this book can tell us much about the discourse pertaining to computational design.
A brief summary (with pictures) of Jane Burry and Mark Burry’s latest book The New Mathematics of Architecture.
A review of Robert Woodbury’s latest book Elements of Parametric Design. The result of twenty years research into parametric design, it is probably the most significant book on the subject.
Idle speculation that the global financial crisis was somehow caused by digital simulation in the same ways architects often deceived by digital simulations.
A brief review of three important computational books: An Evolutionary Architecture; Algorithmic Architecture; and Tooling.
