Structured Becoming: Evolutionary Processes in Design Engineering
2010 (English)In: Architectural Design, ISSN 0003-8504, E-ISSN 1554-2769, Vol. 80, no 4, 34-39 p.Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Computational design techniques are changing the role of analysis tools in collaborations between architects and engineers. Digital feedback loops of synthesis, analysis and evaluation establish a ‘process of becoming’ in which structural solutions evolve and adapt to specific requirements. Highly differentiated constructions are possible when digital techniques are fully integrated in design and production. Klaus Bollinger, Manfred Grohmann and Oliver Tessmann discuss these novel paradigms in relation to recent projects from engineering office Bollinger + Grohmann.
