Architects are now taking advantage of the computer in new ways through experimentation with algorithmic and simulation-driven design. Computation Works focuses on this emerging theme in design practice, showcasing built and soon to be built projects and providing a state of the art in computational design. The use of algorithmic and simulation-driven design raises important new questions which the book examines including: how is computation changing the way architects design? How can computation create new forms of architecture? Is there an aesthetic to computational architecture? Are the design tools and methods related to the result?
