CAADRIA 2005 [Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 8971416483] New Delhi (India) 2830 April 2005, vol. 2, pp. 149159 
summary 
The proposition of using design optimization to formalize and add rigor to the decisionmaking process in building and construction was earlier compiled by Radford et al. in 1988, providing an indepth demonstration of techniques available at the time. Much has changed since, both in the available solution methods and the nature of the problems themselves. This paper provides an updated insight into past and current trends of using this engineering design paradigm to solve architectural design problems, with an emphasis on continuous nonlinear formulations of simulationbased problems. The paper demonstrates different problem formulations and current techniques for solving them. Examples from recent research are used to demonstrate significant achievements and existing challenges associated with formalizing and solving decisionmaking tasks in architecture.
