The following project is the outcome of a workshop, held at Architectural Association, Design Research Laboratory, London, UK. The theme of the workshop was self-organizing and self-assembly systems, cellular automata and game of life.

Computational / parametric architecture stays very close to contemporary theory of algorithms. The authors of the workshop have already implemented cellular automata and particularly game of life in architectural project Fashion Design Museum in Kyiv, 2009. Current project designed within the Architectural Association (AADRL) was aimed to go deeply into cellular automata theory and practice and to define the strategies of control the self-organizing system and to find the directions of usage in architectural design. Implementation of the algorithm for space tessellated into truncated octahedrons instead of usual cubic voxels also became a contribution into cellular automata research.

The aim of the study was to develop an algorithm that analyzes the system and cellular automata based on the statistical data decides how to change the input parameters – rules of growth or initial generation, and modifies the geometric structure of the system given the strategies that are necessary for the achievement of design (frame search, combining in clusters , etc.). Much of the workshop was dedicated to testing of various input conditions and rules’ generation. The second phase consisted of obtaining numerical data from the complex system. Third was the interpretation and searching the path of application of numbers obtained. And fourth – a change of the morphology of generative field and the manufacture of a physical model of the variations’ catalogue and graphical explanation of the search tree of desired result.

Workshop tutor was Mostafa El Sayed while the team members are Dmytro Aranchii, Paul Bart, Yuqiu Jiang and Flavia Santos.
