Mutations of geometries generated by data_Davide del Giudice

The article is an editorial that illustrates the mutation of the design process  through the data. In the same issue of the magazine there are buildings that follow this architectural process; the editorial reveals which is the logic to control complex geometries and generate new architectural scenarios.

In the article the topics covered are:

  • The paradigm shift in architecture
  • The computational literacy
  • A new process built from the data
  • the how
  • Geometry data-driven
  • Specifications for architecture
  • The performance optimization
  • The parametric technology
  • The problem solving approach

In this number of the magazine:
