Abstract

This article makes an analysis of the phenomenological and semiological aspects inherent in computational architecture. It develops a descriptive and comparative study of the phenomenological and semiological aspects in the architectural design methodology, through the theories of the main referent architects on this topic. Analyze the implementation of these aspects in the Parametric-Algorithmic Architecture (PAA). Finally, it proposes a methodological diagram with its implementation. This study distinguishes qualities of greater compatibility than friction in the aspects analyzed. It exemplifies through the architectural products of Kengo Kuma and the avant-garde manifestations of computational design called Discretism, a latent affinity between these approaches. The proposed methodology shows algorithmic tools to generate similar productions through the visual programming environment called Grasshopper.
