title Generative Processes in Tower Design: Simultaneous Integration of Tower Subsystems Through Biomimetic Analogies
source ACADIA 2105: Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene [Proceedings of the 35th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-53726-8] Cincinnati 19-25 October, 2015), pp. 173-184
summary The research presented in the paper formulates part of the methodological approach of a recently completed PhD thesis. The principle aim of the thesis is to achieve simultaneous integration of tower subsystems which can coherently adapt to their internal and external context during the initial phases of the design process. In this framework, the tower subsystems are grouped as the structural system, floor system, vertical circulation system, facade system, and environmental system. The paper focuses on the implementation of the specific biomimetic analogies towards the integration of tower subsystems through computationally generated dynamic systems. The biomimetic analogies are the mechanical and organizational properties of branched constructions, the mechanical properties of the bamboo stem, and the micro-structure of the porcupine quill/ hedgehog spine. Each biomimetic analogy is described in relation to the design domain. Methods of employing the mathematical and geometrical principles of the biomimetic analogies during design explorations are elaborated. Outcomes of the design output are outlined and discussed with a concentration on achieving tower subsystem integration, differentiation, and co-adaptation properties.
