This book provides insight into the theory and application of complexity techniques to model some of the built environment problems. It includes discussion of the importance of complexity for the research agenda in the built environment to introduce new users to the potential and pitfalls of his research paradigm. Among the applications presented are: modes of architectural complexity, agent based modelling systems, coping with complexity within the supply chain, complexity in design, applications of complexity theory for design, and complexity theory and the maintenance paradigm. This book will significantly augment the intellectual basis of the discipline and expand considerably the boundaries of the BE research agendaTABLE 1 24 key feng shui criteria for building design Surrounding Environment Topography Front of Site Rear of Site Sides. a Interior arrangement.
