Architectural Technology – Processing
Why am I so excited about this, well its an open source
programming language and environment for people who want to program images, animation
, and interactions. It is used by students, artists, designers, researchers, and hobbyists for learning, prototyping, and production. It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming
within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook
and professional production tool. Processing is an alternative to proprietary software tools in the same domain.
So whats it all about, well its a computer programing language to allow objects to be move in relationship to set rules such as speed, direction and its relationship to other objects, a recent presentation on TED
looks at starlings with the same technology, want to download this cutting edge technology, then go to Processing.org
for a free dowload.
The uses for Architecture are immnece, I can see escape with large crowds being evaluated with this software.
