title GrowMorph: Bacteria Growth Algorithm and Design

summary GrowMorph is an ongoing research project that addresses the logic of bacterial cellular growth and its potential uses in architecture and design. While natural forms have always been an inspiration for human creativity, contemporary technology and scientific knowledge can allow us to advance the principle of biomimesis in striking new directions. By examining various patterns of bacterial growth, including their parametric logic, their use of responsive membranes and scaffolding structures, and their environmental fitness, this research creates new algorithmic design and construction models that can be applied through digital fabrication. Based on data from confocal microscopy, simulations were created using programming language Processing to model the environmental responses and morphology of the bacteria's growth. To demonstrate the utility of the results, the simulations created in this research were used to design an organically shaped pavilion and to suggest a new digital knitting process for material construction. The results from the study can inspire designers to make use of bacterial growth logic in their work, and provide them with practical tools for this purpose. Potential applications include novel designs for responsive surfaces, new fabrication processes, and unique spatial structures in future architectural work.
