Some brief overview of this book

Emergence is one of the most exciting new fields in architecture today, gaining interest from not only academics and students but also leading professionals, with directors from Fosters, Arup and Bentley Systems all attending the most recent symposium on the subject at the Architects Association, London.

As a concept, Emergence has captured the zeitgeist, embodying the pervasive cultural interest in genetics and biological sciences. In the sciences, Emergence is an explanation of how natural systems have evolved and maintained themselves, and it has also been applied to artificial intelligence, information systems, economics and climate studies. The potential of the mathematics of Emergence that underlie the complex systems of nature is now being realised by engineers and architects for the production of complex architectural forms and effects, in advanced manufacturing of ‘smart’ materials and processes, and in the innovative designs of active structures and responsive environments.

The first book to provide a detailed exploration of the architectural and engineering consequences of this paradigm, and a detailed analysis of geometries, processes and systems to be incorporated into new methods of working.

Sets out a new model of ‘Metabolism’ that uses natural systems and processes as a model far beyond the minimising environmental strategies of ‘sustainability’.

A few words about book's author

Michael Weinstock is an architect and a distinguished academic. He was born in Germany in 1948, lived as a child in the Far East and then West Africa, and attended an English public school until he ran away to sea at age 17 after reading Conrad. His years at sea were spent in traditional wooden sailing ships, with shipyard and shipbuilding experience. He studied architecture at the Architectural Association, and has taught there since 1989 in a variety of positions from Workshop tutor through to Academic Head, and has published, taught and lectured across the world for many years.
