generative modeling for Rhino
What are some good physical books that actually break down the formulas and algorithms for geometries and processes of algorithmic and generative design, as opposed to books based on their history and examples in architecture. thanks
Architectural Geometry is a pretty good one...
do you happen to know the difference between the academic and professional editions?
If i remember right i think its just the cost. For the academic one i think i sent my student ID as proof. As bought mine a few years ago. Its an expensive book but as it will never really date its well worth the investment.
yea I will definitely be purchasing it, just curious of the difference.
as I can see from book excerpt, it tells a lot about practical side of parametric design - do you know some good books that are about theory ?
There are some links here
but which one to focus on to get some nice theory about all aspects of parametric design, not only about nature or i.e. genetic algorythms ?
There was this discussion, back when there was a "Theory" section...
I think my book collection may grow a little this month ;)
I guess anything Bently publishes in their Building Analysis and Generative Design category might be useful.
Also this book might be good, but I don't think it's out yet.
Mark and Jane Burry are at SIAL (RMIT), which is also where Daniel Davis is at...
