Conversations about data and architecture today seem split between naive euphoria and cynical paranoia. The former often stems from an enthusiastic embrace of the increasingly pervasive myth of parametric "optimization:" the idea that the ideal solution to any given design problem can be achieved by simply converting the appropriate architectural values (structural, programmatic, or formal) into computational variables and running them through the right algorithm.
