Course Description

With a series of lectures relevant to advanced architectural design and digital fabrication, the seminar will focus its interest on observing how biological organisms achieve complex emergent structures from simple components. The structures and forms generated by natural systems are analyzed and understood as hierarchical organizations of very simple components (from the smallest to the largest), in which the properties arising in an emergent manner are rather more than the sum of the parts.
