The second trajectory of design research actively re-examines the generative potentials of typology via the reverse-engineering and subsequent encoding of the planning, spatial and circulation logics embedded within the seminal housing precedent of Le Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation. In encoding such logics through the media of the algorithm the operative potentials of the rule-sets underlying type can be more explicitly defined, tuned and evolved. In increasing the internal and context sensitive behaviours of such pre-architectural systems their potency is expanded affording more diverse outcomes that still retain the highly efficient circulatory hierarchies and strategies of cross-ventilation and daylighting that make the precedent so valued.”“explores the potentials of behavioural design methodologies enacted through the medium of computation to generate new typologies of high density housing and highly networked forms of urbanism.
