The studio is investigating swarms through a variety of species, their behavioral patterns, movement and part to whole. By pin pointing the basic underlying patterns of a particular species a formulaic equation can be established. This equation of bottom up intelligence will be investigated in terms of its potential application to design. The studio will focus on applications relating to performative skins, structural components and movement at the architectural scale.
Studio participants are Dominick Casale, Benjamin Ferraioli, Jae Kim, Hoyeon Kim, Henry Kwok, Sang Lee, Keith Lindberg, Ben Poulin, and Melanie Tate.
