Algoritmos en Arquitectura: Terzidis y el Algotecture

“…Algotecture is a term coined here to denote the use of algorithms in architecture. This term differs from the popular terms CAD or computer graphics in the sense that algorithms are not necessarily dependent on computers whereas the former are, at least, by definition. This distinction is very important as it liberates, excludes, and disassociates the mathematical and logical processes used for addressing a problem from the machine that facilitates the implementation of those processes. Such a use involves the articulation of a strategy for solving problems whose target is known, as well as to address problems whose target cannot be defined. Within the realm of computer graphics, solutions can be built for almost any problem whose complexity, amount, or type of work justifies the use of a computer. For instance, in architectural practice, inputting data points, calculating structural elements, or printing large line drawings are tasks, or problems, that require the use of the computer even though they can be performed manually. Yet, there are some problems whose complexity, level of uncertainty, ambiguity, or range of possible solutions required a synergetic relationship between the human mind and a computer system. Such a synergy is possible only through the use of algorithmic strategies that ensure a complementary and dialectic relationship between the human mind and the machine…”
