How are computational techniques changing the ways in which architects are designing buildings today? Computational Design offers a range of informed opinions on the subject written by some of the leading authorities in the world. It addresses parametric and algorithmic design, along with other related subjects, such as swarm intelligence, artificial intelligence, machine learning, interactive design, video gaming, building information modelling, geographic informational systems, remote sensing and data visualisation. The volume is divided into different sections comprising Manifestos, Methodologies and Projects, and also includes a helpful Introduction that offers a brief history of computational design.
