Isoculture experiment

Ant colony

An ant colony lives in an enclosure designed to replicate the boundaries of an Isoculture to observe how the organisms follow instinctive laws of emergent systems to design their surroundings. The ant’s response and reaction to the space is used to offer the Isoculture planners a glimpse of how the city might grow organically to the fundamental requirements of life, rather than the planners presuming how the city should function.
