Synergetic Regionalism establishes a syncretic relationship between emergent occidental architectural models and existing indigenous organizational strategies in an attempt to move beyond the highly romanticized views of indigenous societies as expressive of organizational systems and tectonics that are exclusively vernacular. This relationship generates and intensifies programmatic performance, but also instigate cultural and architectural juxtapositions by the hyper interpretation of natural systems and anthropogenic conditions. It also looks into the promotion of generative architectural systems in order to empower consistently disregarded indigenous communities through immediate access to telecommunications and exposure to global interaction with the proposal of a satellite operation center. The resulting system is derived from the reactions against the forces that act upon it. The way in which matter is procedurally applied along the surface depending on a number of parameters related to the surface geometry, its program, and external site conditions.
