Abstract

This paper describes a basic study on an emergent design system in which serendipity occurs from interaction between computer and human. Serendipity is a natural ability to unexpectedly make interesting or valuable discoveries. The possibility of generating new design ideas will increase if we can utilize serendipity. Therefore, we propose an emergent design system that produces serendipity by using form organizing phenomenon seen in nature and three-dimensional modeling like clay-modeling. Then, we perform elementary experiments with designers. Thus, this system prompts the chances of getting inspirations and unexpected discoveries in the process of deriving ideas. As a result, we show the possibility of generating new design ideas by using this system.
