Abstract: This paper started from the study of ―performance-oriented architecture‖ for the purpose of developing a real time responsive prototype that can enclose large expansive interior space. Questions regarding the relationship between the structural arrangement of systems and the natural environment initiated an investigation in Phyllotaxis. It has been found in plant systems for the optimization of photosynthesis with harvesting maximum amount of solar energy. In the design of a real time responsive prototype, an algorithmic approach is introduced with the mathematical interpretation of Phyllotaxis and its translation into the global geometry of the prototype. Also, the usage of a Voronoi diagram is parametrically configured to form the local geometry of the prototype. The interactive kinetic mechanism of the prototype was achieved with an assorted computational application consists of a photo sensor, a Arduino microcontroller, a breadboard, a resistor, Firefly algorithm in Grasshopper, and motor as below. Furthermore, with the demonstration of the aforementioned prototype in both digital and physical environments, its implementation process is explained.
