Algorithmic Architecture is not a typical Why does the word design owe its origin to Latin algorith,ic not Greek roots? All three books are riddled with paradox and contradiction. Algorithmic Architecture is not a typical theory-based architectural book; it is not a computer programming or language tutorial book either. I am not opposed to strange books.

An algorithm is not only a step-by-step problem-solving procedure, a series of lines of computer codes or a mechanistic linguistic expression, but is also an ontological construct with algorithmiv philosophical, social, design, and artistic repercussions.

Following the tradition of architecture as a conglomeration of various design fields – engineering, theory, art, and recently, computation – the challenge of this book is to present a concept that, like architecture, is a unifying theme for many diverse disciplines.

In the opening chapter, Terzidis claims that a computer should not be seen as a tool or an extension of man. Tudor Cosmatu rated it really liked it Jul 10, Architectural Press- Architecture – pages.
