Formation of housing structure using spatial game

Tomasz Broma



The article presents a spatial game called Cubic parcellation, which was created for the diploma project S’lowtecture: housing structure. The game is an algorithm that allows generating variant housing structures plans and their placement in the urban block. Its rules spatially self-assemble the structure, guarantee housing units access to the necessary infrastructure and residents the opportunity to individualize their houses and its flexibility to adapt to current needs. Cubic parcellation is an attempt to create an algorithm that will be managing the housing structure, which aims to eliminate blockages, conflicts and other negative spatial phenomena. At the same time its task is to leave to the inhabitants as much independence as it is possible while creating housing units. The article is a detailed description of the Cubic parcellation rules and the simulation carried out on a piece of a housing structure.
