The Generative Theory of Architecture

Everything on this website is based on a theory of generative processes. The theory says that we can only hope to build a living world, by using generative or "genetic" means. This is an entirely new view of architecture. It says that the living environment can be created ONLY by the action of millions of people, all using a common genetic scheme, which generates the form and content of buildings in a fashion very similar to the way that genetic material or DNA generates the form of organisms.

It is our intent to provide this genetic material, through the medium of this website, in the hope that the website, then, by being useful to millions of people, will help us all—together—to generate a living world, with buildings, streets, rooms, neighborhoods that we can inhabit with hope.
