Exploring Algorithmic Tectonics: A course on creative computing in architecture and design
Algorithmic Tectonics is a course on creative computing in architecture and design. By learning to create computational design artifacts (such as experimental software, responsive objects and robotic fabrication applications) participants explore computa-tion as a territory for speculative, critical and poetic thinking about design (rather than merely as an instrument of production or representation). Departing from the conven-tional approach of programming courses based on lectures and problem-sets, the course introduces each topic in a project-oriented fashion through design questions. Organized in three modules, design, visualize and make, the class prompts students to develop an appreciation for current developments in computational design, and to create their own projects with an incremental degree of sophistication: from simple interactive computer graphics to architectural robotics applications.
