COMPUTATIONAL AGENT AND MATERIAL BEHAVIORS


Project Design/Coding/Tutoring: Hseng Tai Lintner, Stefan Svedberg Type: Design research in combination with tutoring [elective course]
Course: Agent Networks, Computational Agent and Material Behaviors
Location: Gothenburg, Sweden
Duration: March - May 2017
Institution: Chalmers University of Technology


Description:
The research explores computational design methodologies simulating physical multi-agent processes and strategies to organise material space in response to specific structural and logistical input. The process was used to create highly articulated space frames, to explore lattices, vaults, voids and spatial effects. The studies addressed intricate ornamental local articulations generated in a tight-knit network through consequences found in the global geometries and their forms.

The work began with an investigation in computational processes and physics engines. These initial studies culminated in the generation of global and local strategies for generating geometry which targeted various structural and spatial logics and qualities. The global studies functioned as an underlying form-work on which students applied multi-agent systems distributing architectural effects and articulations through pre-programmed behaviours.
