Toward a Living Architecture: Complexity and Biology in Generative Design
bookposted on 01.03.2019 by Christina Cogdell
Books are generally long-form documents, a specialist work of writing that contains multiple chapters or a detailed written study.
Toward a Living Architecture? examines the emerging field of generative architecture and its nexus with computation, biology, and complexity. Based on Christina Cogdell’s field research in architecture studios and biological labs, this book critiques generative architecture by evaluating its scientific rhetoric and disjunction from actual scientific theory and practice, definitively explaining the role of the natural sciences within contemporary architecture.
