This article introduces an algorithm influenced by Goethe's concept of metamorphosis capable of generating a wide range of parametric leaf forms. Metamorphosis is defined as alternating stages of expansion and contraction ...
Rediscovering Goethe's Concept of Polarity: A New Direction For Architectural Morphogenesis
(Middle East Technical University, 2020)
This paper will introduce Goethe's concept of polarity to discuss its theoretical and computational implications on natural and architectural morphogenesis (1). Polarity, as a dualist principle, is found in most of Goethe's ...
Computation and Optimization of Structural Leaf Venation Patterns for Digital Fabrication
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDTHE BOULEVARD, LANGFORD LANE, KIDLINGTON, OXFORD OX5 1GB, OXON, ENGLAND, 2022-03)
The morphogenetic design process of networking patterns produces anisotropic structural systems that can offer generative solutions for custom design applications. As an example of this type of pattern application, the ...
