Emergence- the process by which new and coherent structures, patterns, and properties â€˜emergeâ€™ from within complex systems Using this idea as a frame of reference, of how in a biological sense, can apply to architecture as a theoretical beginning. As stated before, Architecture is in a state to which buildings need to become smarter, adapting to the conditions of the location. As designers, we have always looks to outside sources; i.e. nature, patterns, other projects, taking inspiration from nearly all surrounding visual disturbances. The inconsistence of developing from different sources creates a discontinuity in the epistemology of the design process but can be argued to create a new typology of architectural discourse. In the course of the research that unfolded throughout the course of 2015 the understanding between discipline and system became a prominent system in research that I was doing in the topic of emergence. That taking the idea of patterns found at a microscopic level, found in systems that are not understood in the arrangement and complexity of how these systems are compiled. The sea urchin skeletal system has been the epitome of my research analysis, due to the structural nature of this emergent system. The discussion of the sea urchin in architectural discourse did not come about out of thin air but from a deep analysis of cellular structure and the system compiled as in the idea of part to whole relationships and from further development of this project this idea of part to whole became more relevant as this system developed further.
