Public, Private, Protected Symposium

at UC Berkeley

Joy Ko and Kyle Steinfeld

This symposium takes stock of the current state of geometric and algorithmic literacy in architectural design education, and seeks to understand the evolving dynamic between increasingly powerful tools of design and the empowerment of designers.

Flows, Bits, and Relationships Workshop

Smart Geometry at the University of Toronto

Carlos Sandoval, John Faichney, Scott Ewart, Matthew Shaxted, and Kyle Steinfeld

This 6-day workshop cluster, occurring at the Smart Geometry Conference and hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, speculates about about the use of a novel analytical tool for structuring the various spatial constituents and datasets related to high-density urban environments.

Data Agency

Kyle Steinfeld

In this introduction to an ACADIA conference session of the same name presents a new prototyping visualization toolkit, developed for the Grasshopper visual programming environment, which enables the situational development of information graphics.

Paradigms in Computing

Direct, Deferred, and Dissolved Authorship and the Architecture of the Crowd

Kyle Steinfeld & Levon Fox

In a chapter of the edited volume Paradigms in Computing, I present a framework for understanding a shift discernible in contemporary design culture. Here, I describe a shift from a nostalgic notion of direct authorship, understood as a compositional relationship between a designer and the product of his work, to a multiplicity of deferred authorships, wherein the stakeholders in the production of a design are mediated by systems of collaboration.

Imperative, Functional, Object-Oriented

An Alternative Ontology of Programmatic Paradigms for Design

Kyle Steinfeld & Carlos Sandoval

This study applies a programmatic paradigm taxonomy to a comparison of two programming environments: Decodes and DesignScript, and yields a set of suggested guidelines for the context-appropriate application of each of these paradigms.
