Emergent synthesis draws a way of outlook on handling complex artifactual systems, where the local interactions between the artifacts of the system form the global behavior through bottom-up development to achieve the purpose of the whole system. The emerging global order of the system structure can be modified in a top-down way from the perspective of the global purpose to the artifacts. Thus, emergence-related approaches are developed with both bottom-up and top-down features offering efficient, robust, and adaptive solutions to the problem of synthesis. While taking into account the local and global goals, the artifacts have to build up their emerging behavior, resulting in the global order of the system. Behavior of the artifacts formed depends on the designer’s specification and creativity.
