The first look at how WeWork’s R&D group measures architectural success.
My keynote at the design Modelling Symposium on how data-driven design necessitates changes in practice.
My latest article for ARCHITECT magazine looks at what Autodesk presented (and didn’t present) at Autodesk University this year.
An article for ARCHITECT magazine looking at three of the clusters in this year’s SmartGeometry.
My keynote speech at Paradigm Shift, on data what it means for the architecture industry in New Zealand.

I’m coming to New Zealand to give five keynote speeches on the future of architectural technology (Tauranga, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Queenstown from the 9th to 13th of June).
An article I wrote for AEC Magazine about the potential for big data in the AECO industries.
My first piece for ARCHITECT magazine examining the ways indoor positioning technology will impact the architectural profession.
I’ve been thinking about publishing a lot lately. What it means, why we do it, and where it is going.
There is a close relationship between software engineering and parametric modelling. This relationship has implications for how parametric modelling is taught, for how parametric modelling is integrated in practice, and for how we discuss parametric modelling.
Revisiting a year-old post about WebGL. A look at the new tools, new business practices, and new frameworks that have sprung up in the past year.
An interview with Andrea Graziano, better known as Digitag, about the shifting of architectural discourse into new media.
An interview with Chin Koi Khoo about his responsive architecture installations that use material properties to sense, move, and glow.
A look back at the software, the quotes, and the projects that helped define 2011.
The iPad has become a primary consumption device in just 18 months. In this post I examine how the much slower architecture industry is adapting to tablet based computing.
Evolute’s recent patenting of freeform planar surfaces and what it means for architecture. Evolute respond, as do many others, in a long debate in the comments section.
Yeti is a live programming interface for Rhino. This is the first public release.
WebGL enables three-dimensional objects to be easily drawn inside a web-browser. Although the technology is still in its infancy, it is set to disrupt the CAD industry. In this post I explain what webGL is and why it is important.
Some of the trends seen at SmartGeometry 2011. The rise of the amateur & the respective market shares of Grasshopper and Generative Components.
An early sneak peak at a project I have been working on: live parametric programming for Rhino.
A look back at the algorithms, software, quotes, and projects that made up 2010.
In the past week there have been three new software projects launched. Draftsite – Dassault’s free clone of AutoCAD. AutoCAD WS – AutoCAD for the iPhone. Evolute – software to optimise surfaces in Rhino.
New materialism and mashups, two prominent topics at a PhD symposium held between CITA, SIAL and the Bartlett.
This easter, a look at some of the latest developments in Rhino, ubiMash, and Generative Components.
