Agent modelling
Drawing of Agents

Drawing of agents´ trajectories, “brush” effect.
Patterning: fixed size of the pattern.

Agent modelling


Differentiation and synergy of the drawing with virtual design process



Search for and creation of innovative design processes, hybridization of methods and implementation of various imaging and architecture generating media in the design processes; these are some of the key aspects characterizing the current development of architectural design methods. The authorial records are created using a hybrid method combining both non-digital and digital media (drawings/aquarelles and programmed behaviour – script).

Drawings/aquarelles represent an initiation stage – they serve as a tool to identify different processes taking place in the examined area. These drawings and aquarelles are characterized by a different relationship with time and from a certain point of view they represent oscillation between the process records and designs – a prediction of possible processes. The authorial design process consists of three phases: transcription of data acquired on site, real-time designing (agent-based modelling method) and interpretation of the results of changes arising from the simulation. The method of agent-based modelling was deployed to reorganize the urban structure. The importance of this hybrid method lies in the enhanced creativity in design process and the discovery of new behaviour that may be further examined under the agent-based modelling method. Individual processes drafted with the use of the method of drawing/sketches could be further developed and validated through real-time simulation in the next phase of the design process. More sophisticated definition of agent behaviour can stimulate actual changes, which could become the topic for further research.
