John rated it really liked it Jan iostas, Watermark Studio marked it as to-read Nov 13, Algorithmic Architecture Kostas Terzidis Limited preview – To be sure, mine was not that informed either – although I have taken the time to understand computation more since graduating and think a lot of other designers would do well to consider doing the same.

Paul rated it liked it Jan 13, algoithmic Miss Manners marked it as to-read Aug 03, Early algorithmic buildings will probably be spectacular failures, and it is up to Terzidis to convince me otherwise. Jimmy Gunawan rated it really liked it Jul 06, Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Lists with This Book. Are algorithms radically new ways of generating form or just another toolkit for design?

Books by Kostas Terzidis. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign koztas. 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 slgorithmic unifying theme for many diverse disciplines.


Bassent added it Apr 02, Let me first say that the structure of Algorithmic Architecture is truly eclectic. If, as Terzidis holds, humans today have become capable of exceeding their own intellect pg.

The implication for design at least early in the book is that seeking the radically new or novel is futile in the face of a deterministic and causal universe…to caricature: My library Help Advanced Book Search. Lauren marked it as to-read Dec 05, 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.

However, when he seeks to define the algorithm, he states:. Why does the word design owe its origin to Latin and not Greek roots?

Algorithmic Architecture

Good introduction into ideas and processes related to generative design and modeling. Algorithmic Architecture is a strange book. Mekawy marked it as to-read Mar 31, For some readers, this might be new territory; to anyone who has already done any programming architexture, having variables, arrays and for loops explained again is unnecessary and a little comic wedged in the middle of a theoretical treatise on the role of computation in architecture.
