Are algorithms radically new ways of generating form or just another toolkit for design? Algorithmic Architecture is not a typical theory-based architectural book; it is not a computer programming or language tutorial book either.
However, when he seeks to define the algorithm, he states: However, whereas the later two classic works of fiction approach abstraction in a lively and poetic manner — sometimes morphing contradiction into fleeting insight — Algorithmic Architecture contradicts itself in much more confounding fashion… Let me first say that the structure of Algorithmic Architecture is truly eclectic.

An algorithm is not only a step-by-step problem-solving procedure, a series of lines of computer codes or a mechanistic linguistic expression, but is also an ontological construct with deep philosophical, social, design, and artistic repercussions. At the outset, he presents many structural supports on which to frame kostax argument, but little actual architecture.
