New Orleansâ€™College of Culinary Arts
A strong notion of economic growth and community rebirth in New Orleans is underway. Around the site, the area is populated with many local businesses and churches lining the street, community gardens, a boxing gym and after-school activity centers. New Orleansâ€™ College of Culinary Arts pushes the use of steel through a figural, structural steel-skinned tower, which plays an active role on the stage of the site and rebirth of the area. It ouses meditative space such as lounges, classrooms and a two-story wine room. Its structure penetrates though the single-story restaurant and serves the public at the street edge, while the Culinary Arts School occupies the main six-story tower.

Custom parameters - in the form of mathematical formulas - are used to generate form. In turn, the frames and windows flex as parameters change by the user; this is a snapshot of one design.

CONCLUSION FROM RESEARCH ENTITLED: Digital Regression: Intuitive Practice and the Future of Architecture (2011).
“Architecture has a long history independent from
computer science; however, digital technology has become imbedded into our contemporary society at a global scale. As a global society, our values are also changing as the degree of separation between computer aided thinking and human thought comes closer together. Digital technology has the capacity to render what were otherwise unattainable ideas into fully realized solutions. Hand-drawing and fast thinking allow for a less fragmented creative process compared to the slow thought necessary to process computer generated ideas quickly.
Our schools are teaching
students to rely upon slow thought technology early during the design process. Computers can process information quickly but they cannot think intuitively and I don’t believe there is a substitution for a human’s ability to create. New generations of architects are being introduced to complex thought-process thinking via digital technology at an increasingly early age. I wonder if this introduction to computers will enable students and practitioners of architecture to design more intuitively in the future. My hope is that students of architecture, and the profession, do not reduce their ability and responsibility to generate ideas using their natural intuition. They are the sources responsible for the generation of ideas. Human intuition continues to guide digital technology and not vice versa.“
