In a historical moment when pedagogies of drawing and computing are still being debated, this timely contribution, in a historical moment when pedagogies of drawing and computing are still being debated, identifies, unpacks, and repositions the instrumentality of the tools that underlie varied media. Linking strategies that range from the compositional to the rule-based, Lostritto historicizes these tools, the ideas that precede them, and their results. What surfaces is a refreshing respite from the limiting dichotomies we have all endured in the trenches of curricular debates. Beyond the intellectual precision of the book's argument, Lostritto's drawings form an indispensable body of work whose figures and configurations embody, line by line, the evidence through which the instruments of the discipline manifest that debate.--Nader Tehrani dean of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture and Principal of NADAAA Pithy, provocative, and timely, Carl Lostritto's Computational Drawing opens conversations for designers, architects, and innocent bystanders alike, cultivating relations between drawing and computation and possible hybridizations of the two. With acupuncture-like precision, Lostritto unpacks genetic connections between drawing and computing, on the prowl for new visual bodies and alternative forms of knowledge constructions--revelatory insights a double key click or bodily gesture away. Operating in the space between a guidebook and Jorge Luis Borges's encyclopedic Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, Computational Drawing gathers, dissects, and re-splices assumptions about the generative potential of computing and drawing, realigning things taken for granted. A must have for amateurs and accomplished visual dreamers alike, Lostritto's erudite writing and complementary images are a feast for the eyes and mind, seeding possibilities for drawn and computational languages, known, unknown, and discoverable.--Perry Kulper associate professor of Architecture, A. Alfred Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning
