Paradigms in Computing: Making, Machines, and Models for Design Agency in Architecture brings together critical, theoretical, and practical research and design that illustrates the plurality of computing approaches within the broad spectrum of design and mediated practices. It is an interrogation of our primary field of architecture through the lens of computing, and yet one that realizes a productive expanding of our métier’s definition and boundaries. It is a compilation that purposefully promotes architecture’s disciplinary reach and incorporations beyond the design and construction of buildings and cities.

The book offers a glimpse into the wide range of positions and experiences that are shaping practice and discourse today. The work included in Paradigms in Computing is evidence that models for enquiry are many and proliferating. As digitalization and computation continue to infuse our processes with new tools and new design environments, some of the trends collected in this book will continue to be central to the production and speculation of architecture, and others will, in retrospect, be recognized as the seeds of new, or perhaps multiple, paradigms.

Included are essays and projects, from; Alisa Andrasek, Rachel Armstrong, Philip Beesley, Tom Bessai, Shajay Bhooshan, Brad Cantrel, Matias Del Campo, Pablo Eiroa, Marc Fornes, David Jason Gerber, Maria Paz Gutierrez, Alvin Huang, Jason Kelly Johnson, Simon Kim, Neil Leach, Greg Lynn, Elena and Anna Maria Manferdini, Alex McDowell, Phillippe Morel, Nick Puckett, Casey Reas, Alex Robinson, Jenny Sabin, Jose Sanchez, Patrik Schumacher, Kyle Steinfeld, Satoru Sugihara, Orkan Telhan, Kathy Velikov and Geoffrey Thun, Tom Verebes, Leire Asensio Villoria and David Mah, Jenny Wu, Eric Howeler and Meejin Yoon, and Zaha Hadid Architects.

Dr. David Jason Gerber is an architect, educator, researcher and serial entrepreneur. His work in practice and academia innovates at the intersection of design, engineering, and computer science and brings to design and architecture enhanced exploration, integration and articulation through technology. Dr. Gerber is a professor of architecture and engineering with years of experience in the global practice of architecture, urban design, and technology research and development. His research and professional practice continues to be widely published, cited and exhibited internationally. Dr. Gerber has degrees from UC Berkeley, the Architectural Association in London, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and has held fellowships at MIT’s Media Lab and Harvard University.

Mariana Ibañez is an architect and designer with degrees from the University of Buenos Aires and the Architectural Association in London. She is a founding principal of Ibañez Kim Studio and an Associate Professor of Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. Mariana’s work has been exhibited and published in journals worldwide. In her practice and academics, Mariana focuses on the agenda of augmented environments and interactive design, exploring the relationship between space, material technology, computation and media in architecture and urbanism.

Title: eVolo_06: Digital & Parametric Architecture
Cover: Perfect Bound
Size: 9″ x 12″
Pages: 312
ISSN: 1946-634x
ISBN: 978-1938740060

Digital & Parametric Architecture explores the development of the latest digital tools including advance-modeling software and computer aided design in the production of architecture. It is a journey through the most fascinating projects, digitally designed and fabricated, during the second decade of the 21st century. The book highlights the use of these technologies to explore tectonic operations such as sectioning, folding, contouring, and tessellating. A wide variety of projects that range in scale and location offer an insight into the architecture of the future.

Title: eVolo Skyscrapers 2: 15o New Projects Redefine Building High
Cover: Hardcover
Size: 9″ x 12″ x 2.5″
Pages: 628
ISBN: 978-1938740053

This publication is the follow-up to the highly acclaimed book “eVolo Skyscrapers”. 150 new skyscrapers submitted to the eVolo Skyscraper Competition are categorized and examined. These super-tall structures take into consideration the advances in technology, the exploration of sustainable systems, and the establishment of new urban and architectural methods to solve economic, social, and cultural problems of the contemporary city; including the scarcity of natural resources and infrastructure and the exponential increase of inhabitants, pollution, economic division, and unplanned urban sprawl.

The book is also an investigation on the public and private space and the role of the individual and the collective in the creation of dynamic and adaptive vertical communities. The designs respond to the exploration and adaptation of new habitats and territories based on a dynamic equilibrium between man and nature – a new kind of adaptive design capable of intelligent growth through the self-regulation of its own systems.

The success of the competition relied on the expertise of world renowned jurors including: Chris Bosse, Vincent Callebaut, Julien De Smedt, Hernan Diaz Alonso, Marc Fornes, Florian Idenburg, Mitchell Joachim, Edward Keller, Jing Liu, Alexander Rieck, Francois Roche, Michel Rojkind, Roland Snooks, Tobias Wallisser, Tom Wiscombe, and Ma Yansong among many others.
