title Emergent space diagrams: The application of swarm intelligence to the problem of automatic plan generation
source T. Tidafi and T. Dorta (eds) Joining Languages, Cultures and Visions: CAADFutures 2009, PUM, 2009, pp. 245-258
summary This work investigates how diagrams of architectural space might self-organize relative to specific associational parameters to generate diagrams of spatial organization. The premise is that buildings are systems of spatial relations defined by the dynamic interactions of various autonomous spatially discrete entities. Looking to swarm intelligence, the focus here is on the problem of circulation and explicit spatial arrangement. The paper reports an investigation of emergent route formation and spatial connectivity based on simple agent and pheromone interaction. An array of ant colonies defines the system. A colony’s nest represents a specific space. Space-agents transmit information throughout the space-colony population, defining an emergent communication network.
