The Jordanian desert ecology is a distinct unaltered antiquity, a magnificent heterogeneous landscape that is emergent of fluid erosion processes which have occurred over fifty million years. The biodiversity of the desert reveals a vast platform for research into natural artifacts.
Participants investigated natural phenomena which included sand dunes, rock strata, rock bridges, canyon, gorge and mountain formations. During the workshop, participants visited, examined and inhabited two UNESCO world heritage sites: Wadi Rum and Petra; the later named as one of the worlds seven wonders.
Throughout the design-research workshop, participants investigated the morphology of the desert and its underlying principles and processes within a computational context; working towards the development of algorithmically generated typologies.
