Emergent Architecture (Los Angeles, USA)

Emergent Architecture is an internationally recognized design office based out of Los Angeles, California, operating at the forefront of digital design since 1999. The office's work is driven by models of biology and computation, as well as by contemporary design sensibilities. Emergent's work stands out in terms of its synthesis of form, pattern, color, and technology. In particular, Emergent is known for its ability to blend aesthetic and engineering issues into singular, irreducible constructions. Emergent's work questions the dialectic of excess and efficiency in design, in favor of a more complex understanding of both through biological thinking. The cyclical process of mutation and selection in nature provides a model for design which is ecological in the broadest sense of the word. Their interest is, however, not in promoting particular design techniques, but rather in the formal, spatial, and atmospheric effects produced at the back end.
