The Ecological Superblock Design Science for the Architecture of the City

Supervisors: Dr Michael Weinstock, Dr George Jeronimidis

The design research uses evolutionary computation to create novel morphologies and topologies of city tissues, and to develop a generative computation model applicable to different climates and ecological systems by modifying the operative and critical parameters. The project seeks to establish a methodology based on principles extracted from design science and new developments in the biological sciences, advances in material sciences and new modes of production, including digital fabrication.
