Multiplanar surface articulation: through the mutual adaptiogenesis of geometric fitness criteria and geometric articulation the morphogenetic process yields an ever-increasing complexity of two co-evolved surfaces that nevertheless remains coherent with the logics of the material system and manufacturing with a laser cutter.

Evolutionary Computation and Artificial Life in Architecture: Exploring the Potential of Generative and Genetic Algorithms as Operative Design Tools

The current groundwork in evolutionary computation and generative computation presents promising potentials for applications in architecture. In this article, Dr Una-May O’Reilly, Martin Hemberg and Achim Menges examine the capacity of software developments that operate at the intersection of architecture, artificial intelligence, artificial life, engineering and material science. Two morphogenetic design experiments explore the application of combined generative and genetic algorithms as operative design tools.

Nature’s complex forms and systems arise from evolutionary processes. In addition, living forms grow, and growth is a complex process, intertwining contributions of the genotype with the variable contributions of environment and phenotypic dependencies. In nature the genotype comprises the genetic constitution of an individual, while the phenotype is the product of the interactions between the genotype ...
