(Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science, 2015-11-10)
This paper claims that the use of the computer as generative methodological tool for designing urban and building scenarios (when perceived systematically) is a misnomer, because the typical approach does not account for ...
The Spatiality of Being
(Springer Science, 2015-01-15)
Space is a product of semiosis. It is a condition pertinent to an organism’s semiotic freedom, which is articulated by the organism as a consequence of its capacity to manipulate the world in the course of its unfolding ...
(Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science, 2014-04-01)
Creativity in the natural and human worlds is distinct. Designers have always looked to nature as a source of inspiration and in recent decades the computer has been used as a tool to engage with the self-organising and ...
(Cambridge Scholars Publishing., 2015-04-01)
Taking the basic unit of existence to be the organism-in-its-environment, which is coupled to the world through its capacity to sense, and thus interpret its surroundings, this paper argues (from an evolutionary perspective) ...
Hacking design: novelty and diachronic emergence.
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-07)
The concept of emergence has had a significant effect on architectural theory, instigating a paradigmatic change in design and affecting the way buildings are perceived. In practice the practicalities of building procurement ...

A cell inspired model of configuration
(Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)., 2015-10-22)
The purpose of this paper is two-fold. It first presents a biosemiotic comprehension of artefact making, on the basis that both design and life are processes of construction. It then presents a computer model to substantiate ...
An Artificial Life Approach to Configuring Architectural Space
(eCAADe (Education and Research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe) and Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning, TU Wien., 2015-09-18)
This paper presents a method of configuring architectural space that articulates the coupling of an organism with its environment; expressing the spatiality of unfolding engagement in the world. The premise is that space ...
Leveraging nature to envision (functional) space:
The word “sight” is typically associated with the visual sense of seeing, or observing, with one’s eyes. At base, the word is fundamentally concerned with “perception” in terms of perceiving what is, is to come or might ...
