This impressive collection brings together a stellar group of thinkers from diverse disciplinary traditions to explore the deeply intertwined histories of architecture and computation. It’s a model for studies of computation as a cultural, as well as technical, practice.” – Jennifer S. Light, Professor of Urban Studies and Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
