Research paper abstract describing our approach to programmable matter (PM) and its applications within kinetic systems and architecture. It pays attention to anisotropic material behavior in shape memory materials (SMM) and their parametric modeling code structures for subsequent architectural application development. Accepted for publishing at the 3rd International Biodigital Architecture And Genetics Conference’s proceedings at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya’s School of Architecture, June 7th – 10th 2017, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain.
Keywords: Programmable matter, kinetic systems, digital simulation, material design, parametric modeling.
