Energy Accreted Ecologies is a design research project that investigates the notion of urbanism under the mode of renewable energy need.

B-Pro M.Arch Urban Design

Having as a test bed a very unique context at the borders of the Sahara Desert, in the Southern Tunisia, the project aimed to stimulate a new bio-urban territory by reconsidering the relationship between man, city, and nature through ecological solutions in the way we inhabit such extreme and arid environments.

Algorithmic design methods and urban dynamic simulations such as the Diffusion Limited Aggregation simulation script have been used as design tools to explore how a natural accreted processes can be employed as a design method to generate dialogues across scales(from the molecular to the territorial) unveiling the links of a fragile ecosystem’s equilibrium. — Artemis Karaiskou, Antonios Lalos & Anna Sideri
