Digital Design Exercises for Architecture Students

Jason S. Johnson, Joshua Vermillion Editors, 2016

Despite the clunky title, the book has more than just “exercises” and introduces beginners to the fundamentals of digital design—algorithmic thinking, parametric thinking, digital fabrication, data and analysis, etc. Also, we were pleased to get a great round up of contributors to write essays and/or sit for interviews—Tom Verebes, Andrew Kudless, Josh Taron, Marc Fornes, Simon Kim, and Benjamin Bratton.
