Taipei 2.0.2 is a "black-box" interface which projects parametrically computed urban futures at multiple levels of resolution. Tower clusters are produced fully-formed and complete (down to emergency stairs) into an environment itself inflected by their existence and anticipating their expansion.

The thesis is bound within a twofold existence: undertaking a project so large as to be almost unavoidably iconic and, at the same time, embodying precisely the noniconic fabric of the city. Thinking the masterplan in reverse, the design engine reflexively projects new context and urban legislation based on the proposed towers. Architecture then becomes a tool and agent in urban analysis.

Based on analysis of Taipei's paradigmatic urban form and development patterns, the thesis rewires the supertall project, now stripped of its signature, iconic status and repositioned as an anonymous "many".
