A highrise without core - without the need for the taxononometries of topological models - without the slick repetition of morphological modeling. Machines compute without reductions, without structure but simply through the resonance of parts. Here stairs not only compute escape routes but terraces - windows not only views but low tech ventilation patterns - walls no only loads but programmatic shareability - and people not only rent but that what is urban.
