this workshop directed by roland snooks at cita (royal danish academy of fine arts) explored algorithmic design methodologies that engage complex and non-linear systems to generate emergent affects. the one week workshop developed both recursive and self-organising techniques that are capable of generating complex forms of order.
this research interrogates how architectural intention can operate at a local level and through the interaction of low level rules systemic geometries and aggregations emerge. the workshop introduced a set of algorithmic design techniques that students will expanded on in the development of a coherent generative design methodology. these strategies include: recursion, conditional substitution, self-organisation and swarm algorithms.
