[I] S(un)warm, introduces a virtual system conceived "naturally" in a state self-organization.


[II] S(un)warm is about the development of a system where all parties are treated as structural monocoque components (four generator components: SU1, SU2, SU3, SU4), morphologically different, but topologically identical. We developed a script in Microsoft Vbscript (a subset of the programming language Visual Basic), or computer program (or algorithm) that can mimic the rules of self-organization present in "group" intelligence of many organisms, particularly the so-called social insects. This digital tool was then applied in the development of a three-dimensional structure/installation to the public space, based on the previously designed components. The components of the system S(un)warm consist of rigid panels (double-sided aluminum and a polyethylene core) cut on CNC milling machine and folded according to the angles of each variant ( SU1, SU2, SU3, su4). So that not only allows a standard configuration of semi-spherical dome, but also multiple complex geometry configurations. The assemblage system allows the mechanical production of differentiated components and a very fast construction taking in account the overall complexity of the final populations ("swarms").


The final structure combines various components and is intended to be implemented in the public space, Porto-Portugal, creating a space of shelter (canopy). The manipulations of this general structure (using the script that reproduces the swarm behavior) allowed structural resistance and ensure the soundness of the whole.
