Emergent Design Group

Emergent Design Group (EDG) was founded in 1997 at the School of Architecture & Planning, MIT to research new approaches to design at the intersection of architecture, engineering, artificial intelligence, and material science. The group develops simulations, tools, prototype designs and building systems with a focus on the emergent properties of materials. Projects break new ground by combining developments in modeling theory, intelligent systems, organizational theory and the science of dynamics to enlarge the space of possibility for contemporary design and computation." - Multimedia slide show - Knit a Building, Weave a Bike - (NYTimes)
