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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
