Building Blocks

Complex systems are made up of simple 'building blocks'. that may take many forms: an ant, a cell, or a building.

This is a default subtitle for this page.


We also speak of  Modularity components of a complex system.

    Complex Systems are generated from the local interactions of multiple AGENTS. These agents are not actively striving to achieve any form of 'global' structure or pattern, but simply behave in their own self interests. Hence, we describe CAS dynamics as being generated from 'the bottom up' as opposed to 'the top down' as would be the case in traditional hierarchical organizations.

    Cellular Automata & Agent-Based Models can provide city simulations whose behaviors we learn from. What are the strengths & weaknesses of this mode of engaging urban complexity?

    There is a large body of research that employs computational techniques - in particular agent based modeling (ABM) and cellular automata (CA) to understand complex urban dynamics. This research looks at rule based systems that yield emergent structures.
