ALGODeQ is a two-stage open competition with two categories:
QP (= ALGOrithmic Design Program) category
Category for original computer programs created by the applicant that embody algorithmic design.
QA (= ALGOrithmic Design Award) category
Category for outstanding works of actually built architecture, designed by using an original computer program that embodies algorithmic design and submitted together with the program.

Algorithmic design is not simply the use of computers to design architecture.
Algorithmic design is the use of algorithms to generate designs that are good and beyond the capabilities of humans acting alone, and the use of computers to execute such algorithms.
