Zaha Hadid Architects, 2017

In the work BEHAVIOUR MORPHE, developed as a collaborative design experiment, the world-famous London architecture firm Zaha Hadid Architects attempts to synthesise (“morph”) architectural shapes and music with human behaviour. This turns the palace’s façade into a habitat for computer-generated figures. Cell structures dependent on biological growth and adaptation grow from the interactions and motion sequences of these representations of humans. 

The resulting interaction between cell morphology, mass behaviour and architectural forms represents Zaha Hadid Architects’ vision of developing things through associative logic that can be visualised as a natural environment.
