We now live in an era of Quantum Supremacy. This is a primer to guide an Architect through the cutting edge of Quantum Computing.
Architecture is extremely complex with a vast number of design and performance criteria that are highly entangled, thus creating computationally intense analytical models that classical computers struggle to overcome.
Quantum computers have the fundamental capacity to more closely match the exponential growth of solution spaces, and therefore are inherently more suited to solving larger solution spaces. If we can use quantum computing to solve more complex optimizations of the quantitative characteristics of design of the built environment, then we can produce better products for our clients.
The goal of this guide is to create a base of understanding of quantum computing, illustrate a simple script of a quantum program in a free accessible interface, and extrapolate speculative uses of quantum computation to produce better Architectural/Urban Design products and analysis processes.
