Architectural Interpretation of Cellular Automata

summary 
Mathematical constructions and concepts can be utilized in a number of methods to investigate the process of generating architectural forms. One is to technically layout architectural elements along such constructions, another is to explicitly develop forms corresponding exactly to the underlying concept, and another is to use such concepts as inspiration, a starting point for design. A hybrid method is to follow an interpretive approach, one that uses a mathematical concept as a framework to begin to investigate architecture forms. Architectural considerations are applied both at the beginning of the process and continually throughout the process as a better understanding of the underlying concept is developed. This paper attempts to use cellular automata is such a way. The process of investigating such concepts, it is believed, will help other such approaches, as well as, more traditional approaches of design development.
