Complexity, Planning & Urbanism

New MArch Atelier at the Manchester School of Architecture: Developing new theoretical approaches & computational tools using a complexity science framework (systems, self-organisation, emergence, intelligence, structural change, adaptation) for the design, management, governance and understanding of future cities related to climate change, citizen participation, development strategies, resilient interventions, policy making, urban morphology and capacity management.

Testing Densities

The project aims to create volumetric density and programmatic variety – to provide a space for living, working and visiting in East Manchester. The background for this building typology experimentation is an investigation of the relationship between transit and density. The project analyses and tests the mixed-use building typology, exploring spatial and programmatic relationships between three uses (residential, commercial, cultural), as well as providing geometric outputs for the individual programmes.

The image above shows digital experimentation focused on residential densities. Various residential typologies (informed by case study analysis) are tested for East Manchester.
