Exact Inexact_Full Paper

[bibliography and citations in paper]

The use of code to generate form and automated machines to produce said form has led to a false notion of the architect’s ability to produce perfect form or reproduce a form multiple times while maintaining its exact characteristics. In parallel, the current text and shoptalk of coded architecture only adds to the falsity of exact form by explaining it through mathematics that creates only the basis of the form generators and never take into account all of the external conditions that do not carry the same level of precise modeling that mathematics seems to assume. Therefore, a rethinking of the current shoptalk is needed by looking at how it could be possible to use the exact qualities of coded design and fabrication as it intersects with the inexact qualities of certain 3D modeling and fabrication tools, mediums, and material.
