Generative Design & Digital Architectural Practice
The architecture industry tends to be slow to adopt new technologies as they are increasingly changing the way we do architecture. As information becomes a driver for decision making, we are at an exciting period for harnessing the computer and algorithms in design.
The way we design and build as always harnessed technology to save time, money, and offload the busywork in the practice of architecture. Technology is no longer simply updates to tools that provide efficiency though, we are in a moment where our tools have capabilities beyond that of our own.
As we designers continue to engage with our tools, we are finding ourselves designing not form but processes that yield form. We no longer define the rules for how a building is to be constructed but are in a position of compliance with the code and certification parameters placed on our work.
Generative design is an opportunity to rethink process and find new ways to design our build environment and try our hands at an new, complex, approach to ideation in a world where optimization is synonymous with beauty.
This website is relatively new and some of the articles are not yet posted. Please mind the dust as I transition content and projects over.
