"From the Ted Talk by Greg Lynn: Organic algorithms in architecture"

#### Unscramble the Blue Letters

In the 15th century, the decmail point was invented; architects stopped using fractions, and they had a new moedl of nature. So, what's going on today is that there's a model of natural form which is calculus-based and which is using digital tools, and that has a lot of implications to the way we think about betuay and form, and it has a lot of implications in the way we think about nature. The best example of this would probably be the Gothic, and the Gothic was invented after the intnveion of calculus, although the Gothic architects weren't really using calculus to dneife their forms. But what was important is, the Gothic moment in aherturticce was the first time that force and motion was thought of in terms of form.

In the 15th century, the **_______** point was invented; architects stopped using fractions, and they had a new **_____** of nature. So, what's going on today is that there's a model of natural form which is calculus-based and which is using digital tools, and that has a lot of implications to the way we think about **______** and form, and it has a lot of implications in the way we think about nature. The best example of this would probably be the Gothic, and the Gothic was invented after the **_________** of calculus, although the Gothic architects weren't really using calculus to **______** their forms. But what was important is, the Gothic moment in **____________** was the first time that force and motion was thought of in terms of form.

#### Original Text

In the 15th century, the decimal point was invented; architects stopped using fractions, and they had a new model of nature. So, what's going on today is that there's a model of natural form which is calculus-based and which is using digital tools, and that has a lot of implications to the way we think about beauty and form, and it has a lot of implications in the way we think about nature. The best example of this would probably be the Gothic, and the Gothic was invented after the invention of calculus, although the Gothic architects weren't really using calculus to define their forms. But what was important is, the Gothic moment in architecture was the first time that force and motion was thought of in terms of form.
