In Catalytic Formations: Architecture and Digital Design, Ali Rahim suggests that beyond generating innovative forms, digital design techniques allow architecture to engage in a feedback loop with its context - to absorb influences and produce concrete effects on its users. Illustrated with examples from Rahim's work at Contemporary Architecture Practice and projects by Zaha Hadid, Greg Lynn FORM, and other cutting edge architects, this book offers both a philosophy and specific techniques for how architects can catalyze cultural advancements."--BOOK JACKET."
