Title: The Algorithmization of Architecture

Since many other areas, architecture is going through a deep but irreversible change: the new generation of practitioners starts to adopt algorithmic approaches in their project processes, which allows conceiving ways that were almost unthinkable before.
Besides that, using algorithms, project and analysis processes are automated and also can optimize projects.

In this presentation we will discuss the algorithmization of architecture and also present some recent developments in this area.

Guest Speaker: António Menezes Leitão*.

At this session will also be presented the article “Model Driven Automatic Code Generation: An Evolutionary Approach to Disruptive Innovation Benefits”, written by João Penha-Lopes, Manuel Au-Yong-Oliveira e Ramiro Gonçalves.

Guest Speaker: João Penha-Lopes**.
