A Systemic Approach Toward Ecosystem Evolution in Architecture Design

To add a paper, Login.

The increasing complexity of architectonic procedures demands a re-elaboration of the design methodology, incorporating emerging phenomena of extensive holistic fields. As a human oriented and ecological responsive activity, architecture should target three main poles: adaptation, evolution and regeneration. The operational branches, in which architecture acts, are identified by three complementary non-hierarchical moments: 1)Strategic, referring to an inductive proposition of criteria; structuring procedures; 2)Proto-typical, by making machine models, the dynamic transitions are integrated into procedures of manipulation of inputs and outputs; 3) Testing, advance the notification of expected performances; inform and get informed the adopted systems; calibrate the strategy and the machine behaviors. The parallel coordination of this approach leads to an intelligent programming, which explores scenarios in speculative fields where the action of different forces, elements, programs, negotiations, cooperation, exchanges, etc. are simulated in order to foresee through prototypes the potential evolution, adaptation and regeneration related to specific sites.
