The emergence seminar gave the knowledge of adaptation and evolutionary computation notions. The main intention of the project was to examine emerging systems from nature as a design tool for reaching forms that were complexly developed to serve a responsive process to context and functionality. The xperiments initiated with pyramid as single cell and developed through evolution of phenotypes by the concepts of mutation and natural selection. Through the differentially weighted fitness criteria determined in the process, the emergence of further population was occurred by the linked logic of evolutionary developmental biology. Experiments started with 3d modelling generations for the understanding of the emergence logic. The process was continued with the computational tools such as grasshopper code and galapagos evolutionary solver techniques.
