Example text

Like many dialectics, one pole is death by homogenisation of potentials and the other pole is death by randomness and failure of order. A continual or periodic perturbance is needed to keep the dynamic flowing. At one end of the spectrum is noise and chaos; at the other end is stagnation and collapse. • Discourse. A range of active ambiguity is also what keeps discourse at a productive and generative level of energy and motion. Again, when the potential for exchanging ideas is removed, the discourse ends in lack of energy; when the potential meets total disagreement, then discourse ends in outright conflict.

On the one hand, we have buildings that successfully resolve conflicting needs, ideas, values and priorities; they address all four modes of complexity and attain fully mindful animation as dynamic systems. On the other hand, we have buildings which respond only to simple criteria and symptomatic evaluation. Again and again these later buildings, however pleasant they seem at first in the local scale of perception, will ultimately become Frankenstein’s monster when macro-scale inter-relation is at the castle gate.

They state that design is an indeterminate problem, as distinct from the class of simple problems (see also Buchanan 1995). Tic-Tack-Toe (Noughts and Crosses), for example, is a simple problem because it has a well-defined beginning state (ninesquare matrix), operational rules (X or O), and a known end-solution state (three in a row). 4 A framework of four complexities in building design as compared to the science of complexity (Bachman 2008) SCIENTIFIC MESSY ORDERED NATURAL Ackoff, Arnhof, Simon, Churchman .
