John Frazer's architectural work is inspired by living and generative processes. Both evolutionary and revolutionary, it explores information ecologies and the dynamics of the spaces between objects. Fuelled by an interest in the cybernetic network of Gordon Pask and Norbert Wiener, and the possiblities of the computer and the 'new science' it has facilitated, Frazer and his team of collaborators have conducted a series of experiments that utilize genetic algorithms, cellular automata, emergent behaviour, complexity and feedback loops to create a truly dynamic architecture.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
