The common description of the configuration of stuff in a room, one of order (tidy) and chaos (messy), fails to explain the phenomenon that artifacts create structures around people and activities in a space, with both functional and cognitive properties. This form of organization, that is recognizable on various scale levels, emerges...

Improvement of design performances requires exploration of a larger amount of analyzed design solutions in the early design phase. Computational design systems use parametric modeling, building performance simulations and genetic algorithms to iterate through a large amount of design alternatives, converging towards optimal design solutions....

The Abelian Sandpile model was originally introduced by Bak, Tang and Wiesenfeld in 1987 as a paradigm for self-organized criticality. In this thesis, we study a variant of this model, both from the point of view of mathematics, as well as from the point of view of physics. The effect of dissipation and creation of mass is investigated. By...

The amount of travelers from and to the Dutch city Almere will grow from 40.000 back in 2009 to 100.00 in 2030. This requires intensive infrastructural improvements to the current situation of Almere. One of the main improvements of the network will be the redesign of the central station of the city. The current station is situated around a...

‘The future of city-making is human-centric’, state-driven and market-driven urbanism have reflected their downsides. Human-driven city-making is oriented on an actual user and therefore should produce little vacancy and unnecessary space. Spaces will be directly equipped to suit the need and desires that the context provides. User will be more...

Selezneva, E. (author)
The present research takes on qualitative issues such as urban vitality and quality of urban life from an angle of spatial centrality. The discussion is going around the two main concepts – the concept of urban vitality and the notion of spatial centrality and the footprint it leaves on the functional and structural organizations of cities.

This graduation project offers an alternative to the tradition in top-down planning in the Netherlands. The test-case for this strategy is the transformation of former industry area ‘Schieoevers’ in Delft. Both a spatial framework and a policy framework are created to support bottom up development of this project location. The spatial framework...

Population growth and immigration increase the demand for mass housing developments all over the world. These developments are widely criticized for being mono-functional, mono-typological, and mono-cultural. This project is a design method for a new kind of mass housing. All design rules are reformulated as algorithms, that interact with each...

This thesis argues that natural complex systems can provide an inspiring example for creating software which incorporates emergent, self-organizing and adaptive properties. The advantages of complex sys- tems are their natural resilience, redundancy and adaptivity. A generalization of neural networks and boolean networks called computational...
