Constructal Law, in Depth The Geometric Vitalism of the Constructal Theory The Constructal Law Definition It is a jungle of flow systems—a vast multiscale system of systems—with organization, pattern, hierarchies, and usefulness design. It is the most difficult to comprehend because we, the individuals who try to make sense of it, are inside the flow system. Difficult, because each of us is like an alveolus in the lung, an eddy in a turbulent river, or a leaf on a tree constrictal.

From such a position of singularity, which is identical in rank to the positions of enormous numbers of individuals, it is a formidable task to see and describe the big picture—the lung, the river basin, and the forest. From this stroke of luck, science was born and developed to the present day, where it is responsible for our physical and intellectual well-being.


The puzzling architecture and history of society has many things in common with the architecture and evolution of other complex but simpler flow systems: Coincidences that occur in the billions are loud hints that a universal phenomenon is in play.

Is there a single physics principle from which the phenomenon of configuration and rhythm can be deduced without recourse to empiricism?

In this book we show that there is such a principle, and it is based on the common observation that if a flow system e. Observations of this kind come in the billions, and they mean one thing: Existing drawings are replaced by easier-flowing drawings.

This physics principle is the constructal law of the generation of configuration in Nature: Duke is a wonderful place not because of beautiful gardens and basketball, but because of freedom. It is the first account of the ideas, results, and future plans that came out of putting scientists, sociologists, and engineers thekry. The chapters of this book are based on the contributions made by prominent invited speakers at the First International Workshop on the Constructal Theory of Social Dynamics, which was held on 4—5 April at Duke University.

We wish to thank the authors for their contributions to the workshop and to this book: Major threads of this emerging theory of social organization are as follows: The idea is to place the community—community access in geometric terms, and to optimize it everywhere, subject to space constraints.
