Similarly, design and execution processes are merging so that the handover to fabricators and contractors is smoother than with traditional methods. AKT, incorporating the intelligence of construction and fabrication processes within design from the outset and, at the other end, ensuring that the information is produced in a form that is compatible with the logic of procurement and production. 9 Zaha Hadid Architects with AKT II, Central Bank of Iraq, Baghdad, Iraq, from 2011. Shaped by potentially extreme seismic and blast loads, the tower consists of a solid concrete shell at the base, opening into a series of petalshaped columns to support the larger floor plates, while maximising views and daylight at the upper levels.

Design engineers play a pivotal role in this environment, because they challenge the architect to focus on asking the right questions instead of assuming an answer. This is like suppressing a gag reflex for most designers; when considering a problem, it’s nearly impossible for them to prevent form from materialising in their mind’s eye. When we read a good novel, we suspend our disbelief and commit to the author’s narrative. With the power of generative design and nearly infinite computation, we must suspend our belief and not make assumptions about how things should look.

Want something better? Roll the dice a billion more times per second and see if chances improve, or go back and rephrase the questions. It’s a good policy against premature optimisation. The collective future of design operates at transition from digital to analogue, foretold by our early-20th-century scientific forebears who had an uncanny notion that things fundamentally behave in unintuitive ways. Cultivating a post-digital intuition becomes an opportunity for design engineers. The qualities they display continue to expand: proficiency in an increasingly broad technical repertoire, qualitative sensitivity and the capacity to articulate creative inspection.
