Description:


    For this film, variations of architectural form are derived through an algorithmic interpretation of biological evolution. Based on an initial chance of mutation and degree of change, a parametrically described geometric primitive evolves, through successive generations, into recognizable architectural structures. These evolve offspring that retain parental characteristics either in pure or mutated form
