Rabbit Grasshopper3d Plugin


Rabbit by Morphocode is an open-source plug-in for McNeel’s Grasshopper that simulates biological and physical processes. Rabbit comes with a set of 13 components allowing you to model cellular automata and L-systems directly inside Rhino and Grasshopper 3D.

Edge of Chaos intelligent architecture

Edge of Chaos

This paper by Ruairi Glynn, Vasilija Abramovic and Johannes T. B. Overvelde, presents a project intended to make the complex “Edge of Chaos” theory tangible through an interactive installation based on metamaterial research which demonstrates emergent behavior using Cellular Automata.

Chameleon Interactive Facade


This paper by Jae Wan Park, Kostas Terzidis and Takehiko Nagakura, proposes an interactive façade system capable of displaying the meaningful information extracted from this interaction using RFID.

Nursery Grasshopper3d Plugin


Nursery by Gwyllim Jahn is a behavioural design framework for Grasshopper. It consists of a set of tools for creating Agents and Behaviours and executing these behaviours on a multithreaded simulation core. 

An Inquiry into Designing in Context using Generative Systems

Generative Systems

This paper by Sherif M. Abdelmohsen explores incorporating context in the process of designing using generative systems from ideation to fabrication, and explores the relationship between the emergent nature of generative design and the situated act of designing while using generative design tools.

Unprintable Forms

Unprintable Forms

This paper by Yota Adilenidou et al. presents a 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) experiment at the full scale of virtual architectural bodies developed through a computational technique based on the use of Cellular Automata (CA).

Discrete vs. Discretized Growth, Discretized Fabrication of Geometries Generated with Cellular Growth Simulations

Discrete vs. Discretized Growth

This paper by Christoph Klemmt, Igor Pantic, Andrei Gheorghe and Adam Sebestyen, propose a methodology of discretized free-form Cellular Growth algorithms in order to utilize the emerging qualities of growth simulations for architectural design.

3D Cellular Automata

3D Cellular Automata

This video by Softology is about 3d cellular automata. Visions of Chaos is a professional high end software application for Windows. It is simple enough for people who do not understand the mathematics behind it, but advanced enough for fractal enthusiasts to tweak and customise to their needs.
