Following the tradition of architecture as a conglomeration of various design fields – engineering, theory, art, and recently, computation – the challenge of this book is to present a concept that, like architecture, is a unifying theme for many diverse disciplines. Refresh and try again.
Perhaps it is appropriate that this book reads like a series of fragments, rather than a cohesive whole…for fragments are all that remains of the works of the pre-Socratic philosophy Kostas Terzidis takes as his point of departure.
Maybe I like this book because I have similar opinions and interests as the author. Pablo Lopes rated it liked it Oct 07, Dany Read rated it really liked it Jan 18, However, Terzidis also seems to claim and disclaim?

It is refreshing to hear an informed argument about computers in design. Mohammad Abdelkhalek rated it really liked it Apr 19, An algorithm is not only a step-by-step problem-solving procedure, a terzidi of lines of computer codes or a mechanistic linguistic expression, but is also an ontological construct with deep philosophical, social, design, and artistic repercussions.

Adam rated it liked it Jan 02, Let me first say that the structure of Algorithmic Architecture is truly eclectic. In the opening chapter, Terzidis claims that a computer should not be seen as a tool or an extension of man. Advanced Book Search Browse by Subject.

Matt rated it liked it Aug 19, Ztep marked it as to-read Jan 06, Though there are some hints that algorithmic design may someday be the dominant paradigm of dealing with spatial and formal complexity, I wanted a more plausible picture of such a future. How does ambiguity enter the deterministic world of computation? Who was Parmenides and why is his philosophy still puzzling today? Are algorithms radically new ways of generating form or just another toolkit for design?

Consequently, this book presents many, various and often seemingly disparate points of view that lead to the establishment of one common theme; algorithmic architecture. If, as Terzidis holds, humans today have become capable of exceeding their own intellect pg.
In this event, there may be a slight delay in shipping and possible variation in description.
