title Form, Style and Function - A Constraint-Based Generative System for Apartment Fašade Design
source Communicating Space(s) [24th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-5-9] Volos (Greece) 6-9 September 2006, pp. 874-883
summary This paper describes the development of a constraint-based generative system (FSF system) to support the design of middle and high-rise apartment fašades from architectural plans. Floor plan and fašade designs are heavily interrelated, and, sometimes, the plan constrains the fašade design during the design process. This relationship lends itself to apply constraint-based systems and we have designed the system to connect intelligently between apartment plan and fašade. In our system, we define constraints into three categories: structural form, architectural style and function. We use genetic algorithm to generate plausible alternatives quickly and augmented by a constraint-based system, fašades can be generated and modified much more easily in terms of real-time visual feedback for checking violence of the constraints and of dealing with updates smoothly through intelligent connecting plans to fašades.
