In a generative or evolutionary design system the fundamental intention must be seeded and explicitly coded even if the final outcome is intended to be unpredictable. Coding design intent in an appropriately flexible manner cannot be achieved by parameterisation or conventional scripting techniques. So how is the genetic language to be written? A powerful and flexible generative engine is also needed to avoid the endless repetition of a restricted structural language.

In this lecture John Frazer will articulate the theory and methodology of Evolutionary Digital Design and how it has developed since his first book An Evolutionary Architecture. He will also clearly place the methodology in the context of the social, economic and architectural problems that it sets out to solve.



All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
