Publisher's description: Generating form is one of the most fundamental aspects of architectural education and practice. While new computational tools are enabling ever more unpredictable forms, critics argue that this leads to a disconnection between architectural output and its context. This attractive, pocket-sized book uses 12 different architectural projects to explore how generative design processes can integrate digital as well as physical design tools and techniques to produce innovative forms that cohere with structural and material principles, performance, and context. Illustrated with drawings, computer images, and models, this stimulating, accessible handbook of ideas provides a guide for students as well as an inspiration for practicing architects.
