This class will examine techniques for creating form generating systems in the context of computational design.
We will discus the history and theory of procedural and algorithmic work using examples from architecture and design. While examining short code samples in Processing to better understand the possibilities of computational design. This class merges conceptual concerns with the specifics of software in an attempt to undermine the distinction between theory and practice, concept and form, real and representation.
