The Growing algorithm used in this project, is based on Diffusion Limited Aggregation (DLA) – exploration of other processes can be found here.

Experimenting with complex forms generated with the DLA system and the design decision of adapting to a Coral polyp’s growing behaviour, resulted in formations resembling structural patterns – based on varying scale associations made – leading to my design development of a proto-architecture, which was further explored by adding materiality to differentiate between the grown components.
