Algorithmic design tools are far from a passing fad; this article discusses why and how some of the work of the Generative Design Group at Autodesk is pushing the envelope in interesting directions.
CAADence in Architecture Conference merges theory and practice in emerging information technology impacts on the world of architecture. The conference look at Building Information Modeling and Algorithmic-Aided Design (AAD) together from one viewpoint.
According to Gartner’s “Hype Cycle technology curve, algorithmic aided design within the building design industry—sometimes referred to as AAD—is nearing the “peak of inflated expectations,” where we see in the industry what is known as supplier proliferation. Indeed, quite suddenly in fact, McNeel & Associates has seen a ground swell in competition to their famous Rhino + Grasshopper product combo. An inflection point is coming, due to the rapid rise of something McNeel & Associates has become synonymous for, but so too is change. In this two part series we investigate the factors in this change and learn what may lie ahead.
