Sample text

The iterative nature of methodologies associated with scripting, or coding, often used as form finding, can be successfully applied to any ordering system, including performance-based design. Some professionals prefer to use it in its pure state, algorithmic and parametric only, whereas others use it as the first generative step, to then corrupt it, injecting chaotic and messy elements in the subsequent iterations to provoke distortions, “polluting” the original pureness of the mathematical matrix.

One can establish a quantitative relationship between the built and unbuilt environments. However, such quantification alone does not necessarily lead to a definitive answer we can implement to produce real change. We must consider a qualitative assessment of this quantitative relationship if we are going to productively shift and reverse the currently large human ecological footprint. A constructive attitude toward conservation and restoration policies starts with the healing of sites’ ecological and architectural systems at the master planning scale.

Indd 32 The concept of adaptation to the environment has not traditionally been central to architectural design, yet to improve our ecological footprint it needs to be taken into consideration. The pace of growth of human building construction worldwide is more rapid than the rate of evolution operating on biological time­ scales. Having more buildings equates to less animal habitat, less resources and more pollution. Slowing the pace of building by humans while being cognizant of how architecture can fit into the environment around it will help achieve the goal of lessening and perhaps improving our negative impact on the Earth.
