Computational Design (16 Apr 1999)
Instead of a cosmetic approach--making things look good, even if they function miserably--based on the old problem-solving model, Computational Design advances a pro-active perspective. As knowledge becomes a commodity, design knowledge leading to unprecedented concepts, products, and processes allows us to maximize the return on scientific and technological investment. Indeed, Computational Design is not reducible to the mere use of computers (as ONLY another tool), but results from a new way of thinking and conceiving things that is impossible without computation.
