title An Exploration Into Computational Optimization for Motive Architecture
source ACADIA 12: Synthetic Digital Ecologies [Proceedings of the 32nd Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-1-62407-267-3] San Francisco 18-21 October, 2012), pp. 401-405
summary This paper explores the potential of advanced computational methods for architecture. An experiment has been conducted with the aim of applying a computer driven optimization process on the motive behavior of a physical prototype. The choice of the mechanism is arbitrary, and this is to convey that the adaptive behavior of a structure in real time may be improved with the appropriate computational methods, regardless of its mechanical complexity. This provides architects with the opportunity to bring previously static architectural concepts into motion. The paper looks into the fields of embodied AI and mobile robotics research as resources for knowledge on the notions of integrating evolutionary computation into physical artifacts.
