This endeavor demands a closer look at the formal interplay between code and context. Biology provides useful systems-based models for architects to study to understand how context specifies form, function, and structure. While the end goals may differ in science and architecture, there is a driving necessity in both disciplines to spatialize, model, and fabricate complex, emergent, and self-organized systems.

Responding to increasing urgencies of material efficiency and environmental sensibility, this project strives to provide for designers a toolset for environmentally responsive, case-specific design, characterized by the embedded control qualities derived from the bone and its adaptability to specific loading conditions.
This study investigated the effects of additive digital fabrication (dfab) on productivity by analyzing the cost and time required for the construction of a robotically-fabricated complex concrete wall.
This paper by Seyed Morteza Hosseini, Masi Mohammadi, Torsten Schroder, Olivia Guerra-Santin , explores for the first time, the possibility of coupling a kinetic façade with colored glasses to improve the daylight performance. This research builds on a combination of relevant literature and parametric simulation to investigate the development of integration of colored glass from Orosi with interactive kinetic façades, triggered by sun timing and occupants’ positions.

This paper by A. Heidari, S. Sahebzadeh, M. Sadeghfar, B. Erfanian Taghvaei, seeks to illustrate the evolution history of Parametric Architecture and describe the reasons why parametric architecture, in its second phase of evolution, called “Parametricism 2.0”, is showing promising abilities in solving more and more intricate socio-environmental problems.
This article by Gary P. T. Choi, Levi H. Dudte, and L. Mahadevan, proposes a condition for producing kirigami patterns and mechanisms which are reconfigurable and rigid deployable allowing us to connect the compact states via a zero-energy family of deployed states.
The article by Aurel von Richthofen, Katja Knecht, Yufan Miao, and Reinhard König, proposes a method for teaching advanced urban design to working professionals in Singapore. The article aims to expand the discourse on parametric urban design education by introducing ‘Urban Elements’ as conceptual urban design instruments with an inherent rule based logic, which can help to bridge gaps in teaching parametric urban design thinking.
This paper by Lotte Aldinger, Georgia Margariti, Axel Körner, Seiichi Suzuki, Jan Knippers, presents a design to fabrication framework for the mold-less construction of double curved composite lattice surfaces based on inherent material behavior.
In this paper byAbel Groenewolt, Tobias Schwinn, Long Nguyen, and Achim Menges, they focus on subsequent developments in our research on agent-based modeling and present a framework for agent-based architectural design and planning that integrates a large range of planning aspects (such as structural analysis and life cycle analysis, as well as prefabrication planning).
This thesis by Judyta M. Cichocka presents a design-oriented methodology for the design, optimization and construction of sequentially erected elastic timber gridshells.
This paper is by Stefan Pillwein, Kurt Leiler, Michael Birsak, and Przemyslaw Musialski. Their approach aims at the approximation of freeform surfaces with spatial grids of bent lamellas which can be deployed from a planar configuration using a simple kinematic mechanism.
This paper by Maren Zywietz, Karsten Schlesier, and Annette Bögle, documents the approach to rethinking lightweight structures to face the growing scarcity of resources.
In this paper by Julian Lienhard, Christoph Gengnagel, many important historical examples of active-bending were gathered, dating back as far as early Mesopotamian dwellings up to the comparatively few contemporary examples of bending-active structures existing at that moment.
In this paper by William Boley, Wim M. van Rees, Charles Lissandrello, Mark N. Horenstein, Ryan L. Truby, Arda Kotikian, Jennifer A. Lewis, and L. Mahadevan, they exploit a combination of multiple materials, geometry, and 4-dimensional (4D) printing to create structured heterogeneous lattices that overcome this problem.
This paper by Tiffany Cheng, Dylan Wood, and Xiang Wang, presents an integrative approach to adaptive structures, which harnesses the scale and strength of natural material actuators such as wood as well as the functional physical programming of material properties enabled by 3D-printing.
This research by Dylan Wood, Philippe Grȍnquist, Simon Bechert, Lotte Aldinger, David Riggenbach, Katharina Lehmann, Markus Rȕggeberg, Ingo Burgert, Jan Knippers, and Achim Menges, presents a paradigm shift towards a material-driven self-shaping fabrication method for full scale timber building components.
This research by E. Özdemir, L. Kiesewetter, K. Antorveza, T. Cheng, S. Leder, D. Wood, and A. Menges, presents a fabrication approach for self-shaping double-curved shell structures combining the hygroscopic shape-changing and scalability of wood actuators with the tunability of 3D-printed metamaterial patterning.
The Karamba plug-in developed by Clemens Preisinger in collaboration with Bollinger + Grohmann Engineers has been developed to predict the behaviour of structures under external loads.
This article by David Rutten, discusses the parallels between phase space topologies and computational terminology as well as how generic solvers arrive at their solutions.
This article by Francesca Bertacchini, Eleonora Bilotta, Francesco Demarco, Pietro Pantano, and Carmelo Scuro, is based on the implementation of an integrated manufacturing system that involves parametric modeling, optimization, and additive manufacturing.
