Abstract

The architect and sculptor Fredrick Kiesler opposed the linear mechanics of
modernity. As so efficiently defined in Margarette Shutte Lihotsky’s Frankfurt kitchen, his
work expressed the ‘act of body motion’, in the view that people inhabit buildings in a
dynamic and vicissitudinous way. Representative of a world essentially understood to be
deterministic and ordered, the Frankfurt Kitchen encapsulated the dweller in a standardised,
industrial environment. Opposed to the scientific ordering of task management,
Kiesler argued that the linearly devised two-dimensional methodology of architectural
design is out of context with the dynamic of living and developed his ideas in the
endless house; a form in which its inhabitants could live in a poly-dimensional way.
This work focuses on the development of a design process, which may reflect the character
and sinuous properties of an individual’s pattern of living. The study will develop
a process, investigating the application of self-organising maps as a tool for the definition
of space, towards a result which is emergent. The parameters that define an individual’s
pattern of living, will be instigated in an array of three-dimensional self-organising
activity maps, towards the development of form.
