observations

  • computational design is still foreign to mainstream architecture

  • could apply to many areas of architecture:
    • variational layouts (housing, industrial plants)
    • traditional building (Gothic cathedrals, Chinese temples)

  • other methods (e.g., constraints, grammars)

  • should architecture schools teach programming?
