Genetic Architectures II comprises some of the contributions resulting from new lines of research in the Masters and Doctoral programs in Genetic Architectures, founded by Alberto T. EstA(c)vez in 2000 at ESARQ, Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) in Barcelona. For this second volume, whose contents coincide with the VIII Annual Foro de la ESARQ, entitled Biomorphic Architecture and directed by Karl S. Chu, we have collected essays by professors in the program: Karl S. Chu, Evan Douglis, Alberto T. EstA(c)vez, Sylvia Felipe, Achim Menges, Ignasi PA(c)rez Arnal, FranAois Roche, Jordi Truco, and Mike Weinstock. Genetic Architectures II also presents examples from ESARQ's annual exposition, which recognizes projects and research undertaken during the year; and, at the same time, the book illustrates ESARQ's commitment to the technology essential to this work. We already confront the reality that digital organicism is the architectural vanguard of the twenty-first century; digital organicism is the new architecture of the third millennium-as illustrated throughout this book.
