digital morphogenesis

‘Complex curvilinear geometries are produced with the same ease as Euclidean geometries of planar shapes and cylindrical, spherical or conical forms. The plan no longer “generates” the design; sections attain a purely analytical role. Grids, repetitions and symmetries lose their past raison d’etre, as infinite variability becomes as feasible as modularity, and as mass-customization presents alternatives to mass-production.”
