    DescriptionGenerative design is a revolutionary new method of creating artwork, models and animations from sets of rules, or algorithms. By using accessible programming languages such as Processing, artists and designers are producing extravagant, crystalline structures that can from the basis of anything from patterned textiles and typography to lighting, scientific diagrams, sculptures, film and even fantastical buildings. Opening with a gallery of thirty five illustrated case studies, Generative Design takes users through specific, practical instructions on how to create their own visual experiments by combining simple to use programming codes with basic design principles. A detailed handbook of advanced strategies provides visual artists with all the tools to achieve proficiency. Generative Design is both a source book of inspirational examples of generative design and guidebook on programming with Processing for designers. It covers the foundations of programming, includes important programming codes and showcases projects by leading international practitioners.

    Review quote
    "Fortunately, this insiders' how-to manual--by Hartmut Bohnacker, Benedikt Gross, and Julia Laub--contains loads of images and project profiles that together form a snapshot of the emerging field, which, in layman's terms, uses computer software and algorithms to generate visually exciting forms based on wildly complex concepts. The examples are rich and varied, ranging from a series that visualizes the air quality in various cities through virtual plant growth to a company logo that evolves through a kind of genetic recombination." --- Fast Company"
