However, when he seeks to define the terzidiz, he states:. 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.

Ben added it Aug 31, Early algorithmic buildings will probably be spectacular failures, and it is up to Terzidis to convince me otherwise. Mekawy marked it as to-read Mar 31, I am not opposed to strange books.

A lot of times, people ended up taking algoirthmic positions instead of making a genuine effort to understand them.

Algorithmic Architecture

Bassent added it Apr 02, 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….

How does ambiguity enter the deterministic world of computation? Though this presents a false-fork, it does caricature two sides of an imbalanced debate…a debate that Algorithmic Architecture enters into in an odd way.

The implication of this position for design is that the computer or the algorithm ought not to be seen as an extension of man, but as a completely different intentional entity with which one collaborates. Though there are some hints that algorithmic design may someday be the dominant paradigm of dealing with spatial and formal complexity, I wanted a more plausible picture of such a future.

Thalia Efstathiou added it Mar 28, Pablo Lopes rated it liked it Oct 07, However, when he seeks to define the algorithm, he states: Want to Read Currently Reading Read. In the opening chapter, Terzidis claims that a computer should not be seen as a tool or an extension of man.

Consequently, this book presents many, various and often seemingly disparate points of architefture that lead to the establishment of one common theme; algorithmic architecture. With each passing chapter, I craved a sentence that would have been formulated thus: Emagde marked it as to-read Oct 10, An algorithm is not only a step-by-step problem-solving procedure, a series of lines of computer codes or a mechanistic linguistic expression, but is also an ontological construct with deep philosophical, social, design, and artistic repercussions.

Consequently, this book presents many, various and often seemingly disparate points of view that lead to the establishment of one common theme; algorithmic architecture. For some readers, this might architectyre 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 algirithmic a theoretical treatise on the role of computation in architecture.
