COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY IN ARCHITECTURAL REPRESENTATION

D.G. Papi

Politecnico di Milano (ITALY)
It is a widely known fact that the computational geometry is not a discipline in its own right, but that is basically a set of methods that are designed to process the geometric problems through computers.

If we accept this as the only reality, then we can certainly believe that you must very unlikely deal with a problem related to some transformation of what may or may not depict geometry. On the contrary, we believe that although there is neither a change in the epistemological status of the discipline nor in perimeters of its action, the introduction of "computational shapes" as part of what the geometry may propose, rather than describe "a posteriori", is in fact a way to create a new and broader forms of abacus of reference for the project of architecture. In this report we want to give an account of the study done on this relationship and of its fallout in the teaching of Descriptive Geometry modules in the Architectural Representation courses at the School of Architecture at the Politecnico di Milano.
