As a part of MUPAC collaboration program, the Algorithmic Growth was a design proposal I made for the gradual conversion of the Baba Sahib slum towards a more efficient and better life quality for its inhabitants.  A small dwelling unit was utilised to gradually change the urban form and design of the site. The growth algorithm was set through the use of Rabbit add-on for Grasshopper software on one hand, on the other hand, a set of parameters such as accessibility, wind direction and sun exposure were defined to control, limit and direct the growth so that the resulting form would serve the desired sun exposure and wind movement. Thus an ideal micro-environment can be engendered.

 

The following slides show the details of the proposal:
