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.

Geometric Computation

Joy Ko, Kyle Steinfeld

Geometric Computation: Foundations for Design describes the mathematical and computational concepts that are central to the practical application of design computation in a manner tailored to the visual designer. Uniquely pairing key topics in code and geometry, this book develops the two key faculties required by designers that seek to integrate computation into their creative practice: an understanding of the structure of code in object-oriented programming, and a proficiency in the fundamental geometric constructs that underlie much of the computational media in visual design.
