An Evolutionary Architecture - John Frazer

It concentrates on the work of Diploma Unit 11 run by John and Julia Frazer (with Pete Silver and Guy Westbrook) between 1989 and 1996, but includes formative work by the author dating back to his diploma prize-winning project at the AA in 1969 and related research work at Cambridge University. The book investigates the fundamental form-generating processes in architecture, considering architecture as a form of artificial life, and proposing a genetic representation in a form of DNA-like code-script, which can then be subject to developmental and evolutionary processes in response to the user and the environment.

The aim of an evolutionary architecture is to achieve in the built environment the symbiotic behaviour and metabolic balance found in the natural environment.

John Conway's Game of Life

It is a 'cellular automaton', and was invented by Cambridge mathematician John Conway. Wiener. While it is impossible to assign credit for the conception of Cybernetics to a single individual, certainly one of the people most responsible for its development and popularity as well as its theoretical shape was the mathematician Norbert Wiener (see Wiener, Norbert).

Wiener

Wiener wrote several popular books in which he coined the word "cybernetics," elaborated on its central concepts, and sought to illuminate its ethical and social implications. In so doing, he helped to spread the insights to be gained from studying control and communication systems, and also to heighten an awareness of the ethical and social consequences of automation and mass communication. As the son of one of the world's leading linguists, Wiener's etymology of "cybernetics" is itself instructive of his philosophy.

He derived the word from the Greek kubernts meaning "steersman" or "ship pilot. " Table of Contents for AI: A Modern Approach. Chapter 1: Introduction ... 1 1.1.
