High Performance Typologies

Abstract - In nature a reoccurring motif which can be found from the micro to macro level, which is the complex division of space, it is this theory of space-partitioning which can be observed in the nature of cell aggregation to the meticulous partitioning of a dragons fly wing. The Space Colonization Algorithm an algorithm constructed on simulating the competition for space to simulate trees and shrubs, explicitly demonstrates complexity, however at the level where structural analysis is concerned does the algorithm display organised complexity or is the algorithm completely chaotic and unpredictable, to ultimate arrive at the conclusion can this complex system be used as an agent for design.

The aim of the dissertation is to identify the levels of complexity of the space colonisation algorithm produces at the structural level, and to distinguish the structural predispositions of the algorithm. The dissertation not only seeks to provide a detail record of the algorithm and its application, more importantly seeks to classify the possible branching configurations and the attributes of the Space Colonisation Algorithm exploring a work space that caters for the criteria of a midsole element.
