title Open Simulation Environments: A “Preference-Based” Approach
source CAAD Futures ‘93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 195-214
summary This paper introduces in conceptual, algorithmic and implementation terms, the notion of an "open" simulation environment as a "multidirectional" approach to computer-aided performance modelling. A "preference- based" formalization of design intentions/criteria is proposed to cope with the "ambiguity" problem through dynamic control of degrees of freedom of relevant design-related parameters during the interactive design process. A prototypical realization of an open simulation environment called "GESTALT' for simultaneous treatment (parametric manipulation) of various design and performance variables is demonstrated. Some preliminary results of computer-assisted generation of performance-responsive designs are presented.
