From the Back Cover:

The production of architecture, both intellectually and physically, is on the brink of a fundamental change. Computational designenables architects to integrate ever more multifaceted and complexdesign information, while the industrial logics of conventionalbuilding construction are eroding rapidly in a context ofincreasingly ubiquitous computer-controlled manufacturing andfabrication. A novel convergence of computation and materialisationis about to emerge, bringing the virtual process of design and thephysical realisation of architecture much closer together, more sothan ever before. Computation provides a powerful agency for bothinforming the design process through specific material behaviourand characteristics, and in turn informing the organisation ofmatter and material across multiple scales based on feedback fromthe environment. Computational design and integratedmaterialisation processes allow for uncovering the inherentmorphogenetic potential of materials and thus are opening up alargely uncharted field of possibilities for the way the builtenvironment in the 21st century is conceived and produced. In orderto effectively introduce and outline the enabling power ofcomputational design along with its inherent relationship to abiological paradigm, this publication looks at formation andmaterialisation in nature, integrative computational design, andengineering and manufacturing integration.

  • Architectural contributors include: Cristiano Cecatto, NeriOxman, Skylar Tibbits and Michael Weinstock.
  • A scientific perspective by Philip Ball and J ScottTurner.
  • Features: Buro Happold's SMART group, DiniTech, Foster +Partners' Specialist Modelling Group, the Freeform Constructiongroup and Stuttgart University's Institute for ComputationalDesign.

About the Author:

Achim Menges is an architect, professor and the director of the Institute for Computational Design at Stuttgart University. He is also Visiting Professor in Architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design and Visiting Professor for the Emergent Technologies and Design Graduate Program at the Architectural Association in London. Menges' research focuses on the development of integral design processes at the intersection of evolutionary computation, algorithmic design, biomimetic engineering and computer-aided manufacturing that enables a highly articulated, performative built environment. His projects have been published and exhibited worldwide and received international awards. Menges has lectured widely and published more than 60 papers and articles on his research over the last eight years.
