Today, through recourse to the most advanced digital tools, architects envisage projects which evolve according to principals similar to those found in nature. In close proximity to science, they develop a high level of proficiency in mathematics, which enables them to artificially simulate formation and growth processes unique to the kingdom of life.The architecture is therefore designed like an organism in constant adaptation, with the ability to evolve in close interaction with the material conditions of its environment.Broadly exceeding the boundaries of their practice, architects now develop a practice at the crossroads of design, computer science, engineering and biology.][ Conditions for production in the domain of architecture are radically redefined by this convergence, as well as by the constant evolution of the processes and tools for digital manufacturing.For the first time, these new design processes which integrate the fields of robotics, nanotechnology, genetics and biotechnology are presented through research of a new generation.
