The EAST & WEST was Defined by a Computer

The EAST & WEST house by the firm Norisada Maeda was generated by a computer (or at least the overall design was).

Certain guidelines were placed into a computer based upon what the owners were looking for, and a computer then generated how the house should look. This development interestingly challenges the role of the architect, and whether or not computers have the potential to even take over these kinds of creative jobs. This house in particular does not look too forward-thinking, but it does appear modern. The facade is covered with an aluminum material, with a cantilevered section sticking out over the front of the house. The structure also uses rectangular shapes for most of its design scheme overall. Photo Credits: designboom,
