About the Author
Michael Weinstock is Director of Research and Development and Director of the Emergent Technologies and Design programme in the Graduate School of the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. He has taught at the AA since 1989 in a range of positions from workshop tutor through to Academic Head. Over the last decade his published work has arisen from research into the dynamics, forms and energy transactions of natural systems, and the application of the mathematics and processes of emergence to cities, to groups of buildings within cities and to individual buildings. Whilst his principal research and teaching has been conducted at the Architectural Association, he has published and lectured widely, and taught seminar courses, studios and workshops on these topics at many other schools of Architecture in Europe and in the United States.
