Vertical Urban Growth

Supervisor: Dr Michael Weinstock, Dr George Jeronimidis

This research emphasizes the significance of principles of homeostasis and growth of natural systems in the architectural discourse. It proposes vertical growth as opposed to conventional lateral urban sprawl. The intention is to mathematically abstract principles of growth of natural organisms tor produce a computational design engine capable of generating vertical urban assemblies with significant ecological and architectural performance.
