Asynsis | Dynamical Symmetries

(Good) Form follows (True) Flow

 

“The designs we see in nature are not chance. They rise naturally, spontaneously,
because they enhance access to flow…”

(any flows: information, energy or matter)

Adrian Bejan

 

Sustainable Emergent Critical Design
The areas of synthesis between complexity sciences, fractal geometry and the golden mean’s behaviours in dynamical systems over time: leading to an argument for an architectural design approach based on beauty, analogy, synesis and optimisation via emergent, contextual, vernacular-informed yet contemporary environmentally sustainable design.

Draft Issue 2.0 (Peer-reviewed by the Corresponding Editor of  Nexus Network Journal Professor Vera W. de Spinadel and amended/elaborated upon in 2011 from the 1994 original published in AD magazine, John Wiley & Sons London)

Form follows Flow

Dao of Design in Nature & Culture

I’m sharing how elegance in nature transforms into beauty & sustainability in culture, how beauty flows in time.

The new Asynsis principle-Constructal law design paradigm: bridging western geometry and eastern philosophy.

We hope you can make it!

The Dao of Design: Form follows Flow

Hi Everyone,
I’m lucky enough to be sharing the Asynsis principle, how elegance in nature transforms into beauty & sustainability in culture, how beauty flows in time.

Please join us! From last year’s event, each and every speaker had an inspiring and uplifting story about how they (and we – by example), can make a positive difference to the world, to our peers and for ourselves.

Westminster 2014 End of Year Portfolio Review

•June 2, 2014 • Leave a Comment

safe_imageGreetings from Hong Kong! Wonderful examples of cosmomimetic, optimal, analogical design.

Great to see exemplars for the Asynsis principle are kicking in at my Westminster DipArch alma mater where it all began.

Here’s our latest updates on the initial breakthrough AD article, now in association with the Constructal Design in Nature team:

All the best with your wonderful work.

The Hum: do Solar System orbital dynamics display Asynsis-Constructal geometries and behaviours?

•May 8, 2014 • 1 Comment

Is the Hum a Music of the Spheres for our age?

If confirmed, this appears to be more Asynsis-Constructal QED – more evidence (this time from celestial mechanics), that optimal, analogical geometries best describe Constructal behaviours in nature at all scales and time frames.

http://www.pattern-recogn-phys.net/1/185/2013/prp-1-185-2013.pdf

“The logical conclusion is that feedback is present via perturbations between the planets and Sun which arranges the planets into an order which minimises work done, enhances stability and maximises entropy. This calls to mind the Constructal law, stated by Adrian Bejan in 1996 as follows:

“For a finite-size system to persist in time (to live), it must evolve in such a way that it provides easier access to the imposed currents that flow through it.”

A true system contains cybernetic feedback. The Phi relationships demonstrated here are evidence that the solar system truly is a system in the full sense of the word.”

http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2013/02/20/a-remarkable-discovery-all-solar-system-periods-fit-the-fibonacci-series-and-the-golden-ratio-why-phi/

So in the spirit of Voltaire (and to paraphrase): we may disagree on some issues (such as the relative importance of anthropogenic vs solar-variation climate change), but we must defend everyone’s right to their opinion, especially if it’s sincerely held.

Time and more good science, will tell.

After all, toleration of dissenting views is not only a sign of enlightened civilisation, (we can hardly revert to how we persecuted Giordano Bruno for his ‘many worlds’ beliefs, which is now part of standard cosmology); but also of optimal system-balancing feedback according to the Asynsis-Constructal position, high-Phi-IIT/self-organised critical, phase transition regimes. Therefore by being pluralistic and tolerating dissent, we are perhaps also, both following and revealing – a newly understood dynamical, emergent property of nature.
