The course introduces and implements a productive approach to design and construction using algorithmic techniques. Shape grammars are one of the first, and remain one of the few, computational systems that are fully visual instead of symbolic or numeric. They offer an apparatus that remains distinct from other computational approaches and tools, providing a powerful tool for analysis and synthesis, for exploring the design process and for producing designs.
