Through natural selection, two interacting populations of predators and prey can change with respect to one another. Some prey individuals display characteristics that decrease their chance of capture; they have a reproductive advantage and produce more offspring.

This exercise examines the change in numbers of i
Embedding Shape Grammars in a Parametric Design Software
The Garifuna are a group of people that live on the northern coast of Honduras and the coast of Belize. They have a very distinct and vibrant culture. Minority cultures are currently absorbed by mainstreamed cultures and the Garifuna ethnicity is directly influenced by this phenomenon. In this research it is of special concern to encapsulate Garifuna vernacular architecture by means of shape grammars. The research provides a clear documentation of the grammars implemented in Grasshopper, as well
