Computational Design Computational design is a media to perform designing techniques that is, in some ways, irrational and nonformal. It drives the produce of intelligent form and creativity of the users, which often derives from things that already exist and reconstructed, such as the nature.

The second example is a building project by LAVA Architect for a city centre in Mardas. Not only in architectural area, the computational design here is also used to produced an enginereed product. They designed a type of solar panel that opens-up during the day and closes at night, which has the same function as food production in green-leaves.

In the past years, many proffessions, including architecture, has chosen computational design as one of the most favorable designing media.

The first example of the use of computational design is from interior design area. This project uses natural phenomena, which is how veins form in leaves, and reconstruct it into various table lamps. Computational design enable a detailing finish of the lamp.

These two examples shows the wide-range of area that computational design can do that contribute to architectural design. It shows how dynamic and complex architecture can be; it is not always about something that is controlled, but it is flexible, unconfined.
