I have always been fascinated by Nature - Its perpetual energy and beauty, its balance and tensions, its cycles and its wisdom. It is easy to observe that each environment is ruled by a set of natural systems, Each systems engendering varied natural forms. A clear example to this is California. Four unique regions that have hosted a myriad of tribes who thrived for thousands of years, in total harmony and symbiosis with the natural rythms in place. Amidst this variety we notice that each tribe had a common necessity; the shelter.
The two following images are a testimony to the fact that native Californians interacted with the environment they where living in and that the morphology of the forms they built, their shelters, where fundamentally shaped by the context they where built in.
Several sources such as: Christopher Alexander, Parsa Kamekhosh, Acizera Ajdari and Yassaman Khodadadesh recognize that natural forms possess unique properties.These properties are primordial in identifying the character of living systems. Inspired by Nature, I believe Generative Design helps us create forms that possess the character of Living Systems.
