Interesting post and interesting project. Does anyone have a sense of how practical it would be to have architects and building engineers working on software development like this?

Author here!

Currently, not at all practical. But that's why we think it's important to make education a part of the initiative. The idea is that we can make relationships between computation and design to have architects understand design as part of a larger family of analytical tools, and people from machine learning/software development understand how those tools can help with creating a physical thing that is distributed across time/space/etc.
