MARCH-670

This course will explore generative design strategies and tactics. Processing, or the application of generative operations, is fundamental to the emergence of organization throughout all scales and types of material systems, from organic life to industrial assemblies such as buildings. These operations, and the rules that govern them, are embedded in how systems are grown or produced and have a large effect not only on a system's form, but also its performance. Through a rigorous investigation of processing, the designer increases their capability to engage architecture in innovative ways and create high-performance structures.
