Workshops in Digital Design Process

The learning process is a never-ending loop and we are constantly researching in technologies and emergent process to apply in our work. The education is essential in our mission and it's embedded in every project we do. Designemergente have been teaching / conducting for many years workshops in... more...

Diversity app

Diversity in an application that use artificial intelligence to understand human expressions to generate shapes. Unity was used as the main VR platform and HTC vive to interact and visualize. Everyone understand Virtual Reality will enhance some human activities and this is also applicable to the fi... more...

TALCA, Re-Topologies Workshop

Lo que me interesa imprimir en los alumnos, es el concepto de sistema emergente. Simples elementos interactuando entre si crean un sistema que se ajusta, adapta, refina, integra de acuerdo con el medio que los rodea. Entender los sistemas emergentes como reglas geométricas y aritméticas que se repit... more...

The report interviewed a wide range of professionals and students related to the construction industry. During the interviews and discu... more...

TALCA, Naturaleza - Relaciones & Fabricacion

Este año tuve la oportunidad de enseñar durante dos semanas en la Facultad de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Talca en Talca. Fue una experiencia interesante porque era la primera vez que enseñaba en Sudamérica y sobre todo porque Chile es mi País. Cuando surgió la oportunidad, pensé que sería u... more...

Complex System Simulation

In the most basic form, a complex system is based in a large number of simple agents self-organized. Without the benefit of any central controller. The complex system works as a collective whole with the capability to create patterns. In some cases take advantage of information to learn and evolve.... more...

Cellular Automaton

Emergence is a natural system characteristic. The agents interaction in the system are difficult to understand. We are able to understand the initial rules because they are clear defined, for example if we have 3 live agents, the closest agent to the right will die. At the end of the process, the ou... more...

Seminario Algoritmos Geneticos UPC, Barcelona

Designemergente impartio un curso introductorio sobre algoritmos geneticos a un grupo de profesores de la facultad de arquitectura de la UPC de Barcelona. Durante el breve curso, se hablo de historia y de las bases de biologia en la cual los algoritmos geneticos se sustentan. Desarrollamos un proble... more...

Recursive Subdivision Rules

A recursive method consist in explore solutions which depends on solutions of the same instance of the solution. For example, a function take 3 points to build a triangle. After the triangle is built, the mid points of the triangle edges are calculated and the function is called again. this time, th... more...

Seminar Scripting at IAAC Barcelona

On the past Saturday the 3rd, was the final work presentation of the seminar scripting at IAAC Barcelona. I participate as instructor with Luis Fraguada for both seminars: Scripting I and II. During the first seminar the students were introduced to the use of programming as a design strategy. We exp... more...
