title New Methodologies in Architectural Design inspired by Self-Organization
source Silicon + Skin: Biological Processes and Computation, [Proceedings of the 28th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) / ISBN 978-0-9789463-4-0] Minneapolis 16-19 October 2008, 324-331
summary This paper introduces a potential application of construction systems seen in biological systems to overcome various shortcomings in human architecture. Unlike human constructions, some social insects can produce habitable structures with simple rules without predetermined blueprints or central leaders to gain more adaptability. Active application of logics from self-organizing systems can possibly enhance our conventional centralized methods by designing artificial distributed systems. A conceptual case study is presented that involves a notion of the collective construction.
