title Homeorhetic Assemblies - Turning beehive formation dynamics into high-res tectonics
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Österlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 435-444
summary This thesis research investigates the architectural and tectonic potential that can stem from behavioral complexity of collective construction in biological systems and its dynamic relations with the colony in terms of the continuous construction and adaptation process over the time. The role model considered as a case study regards the dynamics of honeycomb formation, and in particular three fundamental behaviours have been extracted from this biological process: stigmergic behavior, structural self-stabilization capacity and environmental adaptability. All these features were then coded into a multi agent system interacting in an heterogeneous environment and capable of selectively adding elements to a particle-spring system that is periodically self-adjusting, simulating material behavior. The outcomes, strongly rich and heterogeneous in their spatial organization, are characterized by a continuous tectonic of emerging singularities seamlessly flowing into one another.
