ASSISTANT TOOL FOR ARCHITECTURAL LAYOUT DESIGN BY GENETIC ALGORITHM
CAADRIA 2006 [Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Kumamoto (Japan) March 30th - April 2nd 2006, 641-643
Architectural design is a very complicated process. It contains many sequences within the design process that the architects have to take into considerations. Within the process, the architect will look for every feasible schematic to make the best decision for developing the final design process. However, the preliminary design involves both conceptual and schematic design that concern about quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis. The objective of this research is to utilize an assistant method or tool to help form a preliminary design and a thinking process by using genetic algorithm to find the feasible solutions for conceptual and schematic design.
