title Towards the implementation of a composite Cellular Automata model for the exploration of design space
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 187-196
summary In this paper, we introduce a novel composite Cellular Au- tomata (CA) model to explore the space of design for human envi- ronments. Consisting of multiple, regularly spaced, interleaved 1D CA, our model provides a mechanism to evolve flexible spatial units, where the ‘cells’ are not defined as programmatic elements but as ‘form-making’ elements. The efficacy of this approach is evaluated via a standard methodology, typically used in the study of complex adaptive systems. We systematically examine the dynamics of a series of instances of the composite CA by varying initial conditions and transition rules. A measure of entropy is used to validate emergent patterns. Subsequently, we investigate whether the composite CA is capable of generating aggregate spatial units to match specific spatial configurations, using a well-known example as a benchmark. This phase allows us to bring an understanding of the results into the con- text of architectural design.
