I am primarily interested in holistic architecture and the rationalization of city planning. From the perspective of an architect and scientist, I am researching the processes by which urban spatio-temporal structures behave as multi-scale complex adaptive systems within ecosystems.
My goal is to apply theory and methods from systems science to create collaborative human / machine design processes. Cities are simultaneously the physical manifestation of buildings and
infrastructure or hardware as well as the software and wetware of socio-economic systems andbiological-ecological systems.
Fractal cartography, cellular automata simulation, genetic algorithms and statistical physics are some of the theoretical components underlying the framework I have developed and applied in a number of projects to date.
