Paper on computational models for user participation in design at ECAADE 2013, Delft

I presented my paper Performed by and Performative for: Rethinking computational models for user participation in design at the ECAADE2013 Conference in Delft. The conference was themed Computation and Performance. Abstract: In this paper I identify the “infrastructure model” as the predominant approach to computationally
