Army of clerks explores generative and algorithmic approaches
in architecture and design. Its rationale is the investigation of a computed
and a computing architecture, one performed through algorithms instead
of represented through drawings and projections. Army of clerks seeks
a new type of architectural aesthetics which are no longer grounded on
the architects privileged point of view, but on the relentless accumulation
of unintelligent calculations, mindless arithmetics performed by computational
armies of clerks.

is an experiment that explores the relations between structure, matter and computation, by reproducing some of Gordon Pask's electrochemical computational devices from the late fifties. The project is a collaboration with artist Arijana Kajfes. Part of the work was developed as a workshop at the 'Complexity and Transformations' interdisciplinary research group. Dendrite was presented at Material Matters. And was also part of the Occular Witness exhibition.

The project explores the ideas and qualities of 'Machine Creativity' applied to the design of structures. The work was carried at the Interactive Institute, during the autumn of 2001.
Self-Designed Structures was presented at GA 2001.
develops the idea of a space constructed from the interaction of subjective observers and an environment , through the use of the complex self-organising properties of swarms of digital agents.
Enactive Space was part of the Diploma and Master thesis at the Architecture School at University of East London, and was presented at GA 2000.
