Simptom develops reprogramming strategies using scenario-based simulations of agents interactions.
The project is being prototyped on the site of Moscow-City International Business Center. Agent interactions inside MIBC are generalized to create a comprehensive map of these sites, capturing the way in which agents shape and distort them with their complex behaviours. Through each interaction inside the premises, the system classifies agents in four categories, human, machine, organization and space.
Built as a tool for both architects and planners, Simptom tracks how changes to default assigned programmatic spaces can alter attributes, such as tasks or communication between the agents and improve the overall functioning of space in terms of spatial distribution, pricing and user experience.
Tested on the site as a speculative case study, the project prototypes how complex behaviour patterns can be extracted and how unexpected scenarios can emerge through the software’s interface.
