Created with contributions from a wealth of experts and featuring a conversation between architecture writer Sanford Kwinter and GNUFORM studio co-founder Jason Payne, Control to Design: Parametric/Algorithmic Architecture is a thoughtful presentation of six independent practices that each engage in current applications of parametric and algorithmic design techniques in architectural production. A step well beyond the first generation of digital modeling techniques, parametric and algorithmic architectural design may well be the future of architectural practice--but what precisely do they offer the discipline, and what are their weaknesses? Extensive black-and-white photography and diagrams, as well as some color photographs, illustrate this fascinating look at the cutting edge of a modern industry. An absolute "must-have" for anyone striving to keep abreast of current challenges in the field.
