4A

On the one hand the abbreviation »4A« stands for Richard Dank's primary focus of activities - namely »Algorithmic Art And Architecture«.

But taken as phonetic transcription it may and should also be interpreted as »for architects« respectively »for artists«. Beside independent design proposals, a multitude of projects were developped in collaboration or as commissioned work for others.

Algorithmic Art And Architecture

emphasizes on:
computational creativity and knowledge engineering
in the field of art and architecture.

The main objectives are the:
* Development of processes to augment architectural design and urban planning.
* Definition of intelligent, computable models for artistic/architectural approaches.
* Automatic generation of variations on multiple features, structures and objects.
* Integration of input via sensors and interaction with the users on- and offline.

Or citing Fabian Scheurer (2007, Getting complexity organized, Automation in Construction): »The designer will no longer detail the form of a design, but will design the process which generates the details.«
