The “Computing Kaizen” studio explored evolutionary architectural structures and their potential to anticipate change and internalize complex relationships. The studio used Processing, an open source platform for writing computational “sketches”, to create intelligent building blocks that could self-organize into innovative forms.

FORM+CODE In Design, Art, and Architecture
by Casey Reas, Chandler McWilliams, and LUST. A guide to computational Aesthetics.
a book about generative design by Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Groß, Julia Laub, Claudius Lazzeroni. “For a few years now, generative design has been an insider tip at media art festivals and conferences. An interplay of complex information, graphic design and the opportunities provided by programming generate new, fascinating visual worlds that can visualize correlations and concurrences or allow chance to do the designing. We are experiencing a paradigm shift in design, which leads to new, formal visual worlds.” (yet only in german).
“onedotzero is an international moving image festival, showcasing a variety of work from innovators across the globe. This year’s festival identity was created collaboratively by Wieden+Kennedy & Karsten Schmidt (PostSpectacular). [..] To complete the community ethos of our identity concept we decided to open source the entire generator, installation software & tools in the hope to encourage further discussion, educate and hopefully see some wonderful new additions/re-renderings of the whole concept…”

Reblog postspectacular aka toxi aka Karsten Schmidt: “Right on time for my talk at Flash On The Beach I edited & released the 1st community showreel of projects & experiments utilizing the toxiclibs libraries. Thanks to everyone who contributed!” Watch it in sweet HD on vimeo.

by michael hansmeyer, who asks “what method, what system does an architect use to design a building? how are programmatic needs and context - with their degrees of freedon and constrains - translated into architectual design?” His algorithmic experiments, including 2d and 3d subdivision, L-systems, and parametrization explore the possibilities to answer these questions.
