English abstract:
The design studio 'Flying Bricks' was held during the summer semester 2015. Its main objective was to redesign an existing building with the use of facing bricks algorithmically, utilizing algorithmic thinking and programming as a means for form generation. The purpose of having students express their designs in terms of code was to emphasize problem thinking over solution generation, which has several advantages but also disadvantages which we would like to share in this paper. Furthermore, we would like to show how our implementation process worked, so that others can leverage that for their own algorithmic design courses.
