Digital Logics ant pendulum This video is reflecting the digital logics of parametric design in nowadays architecture. According to Steven Johnson’s emergence, architecture can learn a lot from the logics of swarm patterns like ant colonies or human body cells. Indian architect Doshi’s Aranya housing project implements a lot of those ideas, although the project was realized years before the publication of ‘Emergence’.

Therefore spontaneous appearance is the result. By following the individual needs of their inhabitants a certain shape was created.
