Human-driven and machine-driven decisions in urban design and architecture. A comparison of two different methods in finding solutions to a complex problem
- Jacek Markusiewicz,
- Adrian Krężlik
The authors of the paper research the aspects of two approaches in human-computer collaboration to solve an urban scale problem: positioning a new cycling-pedestrian bridge in the city of Warsaw. The first approach is a machine-driven stochastic optimization combined with the shortest walk algorithm; the second one is a human-centered process involving an interactive table as a way of communication and data input. Both approaches were explored as part of a one-week student workshop. The article covers the undertaken techniques in detail and presents the outcomes of both studies. It concludes with a reflection on the necessity to inspire a discussion about the future of the architecture among apprentices of the profession: with all the potential threats and opportunities deriving from computer automation.
