Idea Code 21147

Yuusuke Karasawa is a Japanese architect who uses algorithmic modelling and thought to create his designs for architecture and urban spaces. It is a field that remains a frontier in Japan, and this book unravels the mystery of how his firm, Yuusuke Karasawa Architects, designs using a computer, with each graphic hinting at the mechanisms at play. Imagine entering commands like cut, fold, or stretch and generating a shape dictated by mathematical calculations, like the Fibonacci sequence. An abstract “Network Diagram” of figures connects with an actual work, conveying the intriguing nature of space and how algorithmic architecture diversifies and enriches these networks.
