Architects, from Gaudi to Frei Otto, have used physical processes as an aid to find forms. Because simulations of evolution are classified as search algorithms in computer science, they have become the latest find-forming device. Renown Deleuzian scholar and philosopher of technology Manuel DeLanda presents his second lecture expanding on ideas from his book Philosophy and Simulation: The Emergence of Synthetic Reason (Continuum / Bloomsbury Publishing). Copies of the book will be available.
