Digital Morphogenesis Undergraduate Dissertation [Eighth semester]


Abstract “…In the coming decades, we will see how we are becoming masters of intelligence; how science will allow us to create and manipulate intelligence almost at will. We will be creating ‘intelligent machines’, moving from ‘machine intelligence’ which is happening now. And ultimately we will redesign our own minds. Driving all this is the exponential growth of computing power… a typical mobile phone of today can perform a billion calculations per second, which is 300,000 times more than the IBM supercomputer of the 1970s, which was the state of the art technological development then. The exponential growth of computer power will profoundly reshape the human civilization… our world has already made smarter than it was ten years ago, and as computing power doubles every eighteen months, its propelling us towards a very different future… by 2020, intelligence will be everywhere… scientists call it ubiquitous computing… already large part of our lives, our society, our economy are run by machines with specialized artificial intelligence… and due to the explosion of computing power, more and more machines are designed to think for themselves…” This dissertation is about design, entirely about design – the process. In the next few pages we will look at how it has undergone and is undergoing a paradigm shift towards what is popularly known as emergent architecture, in this 21st century. This book will serve as both a reference and a casual free-time reading material for those beginners who are keen in understanding the basic principles behind architectural computation, which forms a huge chunk of this new emerging field. All this is one of the consequences of the exponential development in the processing speed of computers, enabling extremely complex processor oriented calculations to be done in mind-blowing speed. We are entering a new world of thought processing system, which, by any means, should not be compared to the thought processing system in the human mind, since, both work on extremely different platforms – both are complementary to each other, like the two sides of the coin. And, we will see how this system will affect architecture as a whole; the cases of specific relevant projects will help the reader to correlate the theory to the real world. Before starting to read this essay, readers are advised to free up their mind and forget all preconceived ideas about design and computers. This will not only help in accepting facts for analyzing, but also help in avoiding frequent contradictions to statements made here, which might have meant something else in the end…

This exercise was intended towards the study of a historical settlement, viz., Nawalgarh, Rajasthan, empirically and non empirically based on its spatial organization on a macro and micro level. An official trip was conducted to this place, as a class, with the assistance of The Indian Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage. The study was documented in various sub categories of street pattern,

temples, havelis, history, and architectural symbolization.
