Genomic Architecture Built From Simple Codes Of The Natural World
Dr. Haresh Lalvani talks to us about understanding how nature designs creations using generative principles and formal codes so that we can make our own.
Dr. Haresh Lalvani is a sculptor, architect, morphologist, visual mathematician, inventor and a professor at Pratt Institute, working for over 30 years to “decode the morphological genome” – identifying the principles underlying natural and manmade forms. Lalvani’s work is driven by a search to understand how Nature designs its incredible creations using generative principles and formal codes combined with forming processes, so that we can design our own. Dr. Lalvani’s aims at sequencing the morphological genome and sculpting works derived from it’s principles, resulting in compelling physical structures of genomic architecture.
