MIT Design and Computation Group

Description
Research conducted by the members of the Design and Computation Group in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Architecture.

Agenda
The MIT Design and Computation Group inquires into the intersection of geometries and algebras, shapes and numbers in order to trace tensions and establish passages between the seen and the spoken, the sketched and the coded, the perceptual and the cognitive, the human and the mechanic.  Motivated by the vision to bridge the gap between the elusive particularities of creative design processes and the innate characteristics of informational machines, the DCG inquires into ways of thinking/describing/seeing/embodying shapes and numbers so as to generate computational interpretations of design and designerly interpretations of computation.
