Performalism: the connection between form and function within contemporary discourse in digital architecture

Using computers for form generation, simulation and fabrication raise questions regarding the meaning and relevance of modernist-based concepts such as performance, standard, mass construction, module, and grid. Furthermore, computer-based design is not limited to the constraints of Euclidian geometry. Instead, it offers new design possibilities that raise the level of information (geometric and performance information) that is used to create the architectural form. The seminar presents and discusses various aspects of the shift to computer-based design. It also examines leading concepts and theories in computer-based design creation, representation, and manufacturing.
