Tower of life


Cellular automaton growth as design strategy

Tower of life


Cellular automaton growth as design strategy
Managing urban complexity through remapping the relation between the architect and the tool
File under
Type of project
  • Next alliances

In 2005 urban overtook rural population and the gap keeps increasing at an exponential rate. Even most conservative speculations suggest that cities will get denser, new mega-clusters are going to form eventually leaving room to expand only upwards for living, producing, growing and downwards for traveling and transportation of goods.
Due to the increasing density of the cities and new regulations imposed by the governments the relational complexity of a building keeps escalating. More and more variables are added even before the actual design phase which will result in design tasks that are impossible to be solved by human mind alone.
A certain amount of automation will need to be implemented to tackle this complexity, imposing a paradigm shift where the architects’ relation to the tool will flip from dictatorship to symbiosis. The designer will present the tool with guidelines and issues to tackle and from there will work as a curator of the outputs, choosing most suitable ones.
