summary Integration of analyses into early design phases poses several challenges. An experimental implementation of an analysis framework in conjunction with an optimization framework ties authoring and analysis tools together under one umbrella. As a prototype it served intensive use-testing in the context of the SmartGeometry 2012 workshop in Troy, NY. In this prototype the data flow uses a mix of proprietary and publicised file formats, exchanged through publicly accessible interfaces. The analysis framework brokers between the parametric authoring tool and the analysis tools. The optimization framework controls the processes between the authoring tool and parametric engine on one side and the optimization algorithm on the other. In addition to some user-implemented analyses inside the parametric design model the prototype makes energy analysis and structural analysis available. The prototype allows testing assumptions about work flow, implementation, usability and general feasibility of the pursued approach.
