GENERATE: International Seminar on Algorithmic Architecture
Department of Architecture,

30th October 2009 website

Architects all over the world are fascinated by algorithmic architecture which uses computer scripting to generate design solutions. Scripts are made out of series of written commands which can be programmed to solve complex geometric problems. Scripts can also be used to generate new, unexpected outcomes as they have the ability to evaluate, process and build on the given commands. In architecture scripting can be used in a variety of ways for different purposes ranging from automation of simple tasks to the management of entire design processes.
Key international speakers include Michael Hensel, David Serero, Luis Fraguada, Martin Tamke and Markus Wikar.
