title Electronic Chimera: visual memes and the evolutionary genetic design process

summary Evolutionary approaches to complex quantifiable design problems are becoming common, but the possibilities of using subjective functions in an evolutionary process are just beginning to be explored. Three subjective operations are presented that mimic simple models of biological evolution and genetics, but are based on visual memes as units of transmission: phenotypic blending, memetic meiosis, and meme splicing. The untapped strength of evolutionary design is the ability to unify both objective and subjective criteria in a single method, which will enable it to become the preferred generative process of architecture.
