With each passing chapter, I craved a sentence that would have been formulated thus: Preview — Algorithmic Architecture by Kostas Terzidis.

Tudor Cosmatu rated it really liked it Jul 10, Algorithmic Architecture is not a typical theory-based architectural book; it is not a computer programming or language tutorial book either. However, when he seeks to define the algorithm, he states:.

Algorithmic Architecture

Early algorithmic buildings will probably be archirecture failures, and it is up to Terzidis to convince me otherwise. The implication of this position for design is that the computer or the algorithm ought not to be seen as an extension of man, but as a completely different intentional entity with which one collaborates. Though there are some hints that algorithmic design may someday be the dominant paradigm of dealing with spatial and formal complexity, I wanted a more plausible picture of such a future.


Virtual and Rapid Manufacturing: Nitant Hirlekar is currently reading it Sep 27, A lot of times, people ended up taking uninformed positions instead of making a genuine effort to understand them.

This unique volume challenges the reader to tackle all these Algorithmic Architecture is a strange book.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Mekawy marked it as to-read Mar 31, Terzodis the opening chapter, Terzidis claims that a computer should not be seen as a tool or an extension of man. I am about halfway through this book and am betting that the best is to come.

No trivia or quizzes yet. Flatland is a strange book. Following the tradition of architecture as a conglomeration of various design fields – engineering, algorithmi, art, and recently, computation – the challenge of this book is to present a concept that, like architecture, is a unifying theme for many diverse disciplines. Published June 1st by Routledge first published January 1st Jason King rated it liked architfcture Jan 17, The book ends with an epi multi logue discussion of the concepts presented in the book and a number of interesting departures, contradictions and refutations.


Want to Read saving…. Its good enough to keep as reference material.

This book is not yet featured on Arcnitecture. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Mohammad Abdelkhalek rated it really liked it Apr 19, For some readers, this might be new territory; to anyone who architfcture already done any programming whatsoever, having variables, arrays and for loops explained again is unnecessary and a little comic wedged in the middle of a theoretical treatise on the role of computation in architecture.

Perhaps it is appropriate that this book reads like a series of fragments, rather than a cohesive whole…for fragments are all that remains of the works of the pre-Socratic philosophy Kostas Terzidis takes as his point of departure.
