Dynamical Symmetries | Asynsis:
Sustainable Emergent Critical Design
The areas of synthesis between Complexity Sciences, Fractal Geometry and the Golden Mean: leading to an argument for an architectural design approach based on analogy, synesis and optimisation via emergent, contextual, vernacular-informed contemporary environmentally sustainable design – Draft Issue 2.0 (Pending Review and Amendment)
More for less, a new design and construction optimisation paradigm with global reach and universal local application to promote sustainable design and development.
In our work (as just presented to ARUP Foresight & Innovation in London yesterday, Friday May 3 2013), the Asynsis-Constructal Law team describe the thermodynamic behaviours in nature that reveal the golden ratio’s geometrical optimisation signatures (as for example, an archetypal fractal imbedded in the Mandelbrot set/Feigenbaum diagram with asymptotic convergence), in both space and time, an effective Complexity ToE.
Cosmomimetic Design in Nature, Consciousness & Culture – Asynsis Principle-Constructal Law Seminar, ARUP HQ, Fitzroy Street, London.
Shanghai – River South Art Centre – Suzhou Creek
Saturday 15 September at 3.45pm: Asynsis principle, the geometric signature of the new Constructal design law of nature and culture.
At the “Trans-Cultural Design in Practice” symposium at the River South Art Centre Shanghai.
It’s organised by the Nantes-Shanghai Design University Transcultural Design faculty where I am a Master’s supervisor in Space Design .
The theme will be Cosmomimetic design – how design in nature emerges and evolves, analogically, asymmetrically and optimally from entropy – the arrow of time. This has significant implications for both sustainable design and development.
The talk will also touch on the role of an icon of geometry, art, design and architectural theory, Leonardo’s golden ratio and how, through design – it bridges the two cultures of art and science.
The cultural complexity that the Asynsis principle-Constructal law frequently generates will be addressed with an example of a transcultural design project, the Hong Kong Spin, which I designed for that city as a celebration of the success of the
“one country-two systems” principle.

The Asynsis Principle
Long order, regular and non-repeating quasicrystal x-ray holograms reveal a new form of matter, based on Asynsis principle-Golden Ratio proportions. More evidence that the Greek and Renaissance geometers were right about this new law of nature. Once the geometries are revealed over time, when the symmetries are dynamical, we are also talking about the emergent properties of nature.
Using the Manganese atom as a model, practical applications include the reinforcing of steel.
