summary The potential afforded by the open search spaces of both agent-based models and evolutionary engines have given architecture yet another set of computational tools to play with, yet more often than not and with some cause, they are used in isolation from one another. This research explores the set of techniques and results of having combined swarm formations, FEM software and an evolutionary engine within a parametric modeling environment such that they induce materially intelligent and structurally viable swarmed formations. A set of protocols are developed for grafting these formations into the already-built environment, treating it as a resource to be accessed and exploited toward the production of novel morphogenetic results and architectural possibilities.
