This thesis investigates the transformative role of computer software in reshaping architectural design processes. It explores how digital tectonics, facilitated by Grasshopper, revolutionize architectural practice by offering novel avenues for innovation and efficiency. Central to this research is the development of a systematic design methodology that seamlessly integrates Grasshopper into the architectural workflow. This study looks at worship spaces and war memorials as precedents and studies their procession and experience. It uses the procession as a design parameter to be input into Grasshopper to generate design ideas. Additionally, the thesis addresses practical considerations, including the constructability of Voronoi structures. By embracing digital tectonics, architects can redefine the boundaries of architectural expression and tackle complex challenges in the built environment.
