Generative design is a revolutionary new method of creating artwork, models, and animations from sets of rules, or algorithms. By using accessible programming languages such as Processing, artists and designers are producing extravagant, crystalline structures that can form the basis of anything from patterned textiles and typography to lighting, scientific diagrams, sculptures, films, and even fantastical buildings.

Generative Design opens with a gallery of thirty-five illustrated case studies, drawn from the work of graphic designers, sculptors, architects, and other visual artists, including Stefan Sagmeister, THEVERYMANY, Eno Henze, Janne Kyttanen, Golan Levin, Jonathan Puckey, Marius Watz and Casey Reas.

A step-by-step how-to manual follows, guiding users through specific, practical instructions on how to create their own visual experiments by combining simple-to-use programming codes with basic design principles. A detailed handbook of advanced strategies provides visual artists with all the tools to achieve proficiency. Generative Design is the definitive showcase, study, and reference for this exciting, emerging field.
