Dave’s ongoing research focuses on decentralized forms of artificial intelligence and their application within the domain of architectural design. Specifically, he is interested in how distributed decision-making can be leveraged to solve problems related to spatial organization, complex geometry, and
His thesis work on bottom-up schematic design software titled “Stigmergic Space” was presented at Acadia 2013 Adaptive Archtiecture and served as the basis for the Volatile Terrirtories cluster at Smart Geometry 2013. It also earned him a nomination for the Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners.
