(Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science, 2015-11-10)
This paper claims that the use of the computer as generative methodological tool for designing urban and building scenarios (when perceived systematically) is a misnomer, because the typical approach does not account for ...
The Spatiality of Being
(Springer Science, 2015-01-15)
Space is a product of semiosis. It is a condition pertinent to an organism’s semiotic freedom, which is articulated by the organism as a consequence of its capacity to manipulate the world in the course of its unfolding ...
(Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science, 2014-04-01)
Creativity in the natural and human worlds is distinct. Designers have always looked to nature as a source of inspiration and in recent decades the computer has been used as a tool to engage with the self-organising and ...
(Cambridge Scholars Publishing., 2015-04-01)
Taking the basic unit of existence to be the organism-in-its-environment, which is coupled to the world through its capacity to sense, and thus interpret its surroundings, this paper argues (from an evolutionary perspective) ...
Hacking design: novelty and diachronic emergence.
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-07)
The concept of emergence has had a significant effect on architectural theory, instigating a paradigmatic change in design and affecting the way buildings are perceived. In practice the practicalities of building procurement ...

A cell inspired model of configuration
(Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA)., 2015-10-22)
The purpose of this paper is two-fold. It first presents a biosemiotic comprehension of artefact making, on the basis that both design and life are processes of construction. It then presents a computer model to substantiate ...
