Abstract: 

This thesis seeks to explore novel forms and spatial configurations in architecture that are rationalized through the logic of elevated cognitive functionality. The initial assertions, references, hunches and assumptions for this discourse are set out and analyzed as described in the introduction. This dialectic eventually reaches a stage where we can address computation and algorithms in architecture from the naive and structural points of view. The thesis develops an emerging set of exercises to show how computation can be used to leverage complex sets of data that emerge from the human mind and their relations to emerging architectural transfer into form and spatial configurations. To introduce this enquiry an invented and proposed syllabus at 4th year level works as both a structural narrative and framework for the questions posed on computing data for architecture and the design thinking and strategies that emerge from this thesis.
