Abstract

Natural systems develop efficient means of adapting to extreme environmental stresses throughout their evolutionary developments. Homeostasis is the term for the biological processes by which individual beings and collectives maintain their equilibrium in their environment, and there is a wide range of morphological and behavioral traits across multiple species that are rooted in their homeostatic mechanisms throughout their lives. To examine and reflect on the interrelations of forms, processes, and behaviors can yield useful strategies to develop architectural morphologies with significant environmental performance enhancements. An evolutionary design process with embedded homeostatic principles to generate building clusters with morphological characteristics to enhance the clusters' environmental performance in a context with excessive solar radiation has been proposed in this paper.
