summary This paper introduces a novel computational design methodology called topology-driven for the numerical form-finding of discrete networks and presents the essential building block for storing and processing information. Numerical form-finding focuses on computing the optimum geometric configuration of lightweight structures in which shape is the result of reciprocal dependencies between forces, material behaviors and structural performances. Among the design community, Dynamic Relaxation (DR) has gained in popularity given its capacity to support more flexible and interactive design spaces in form-finding. However, common implementations of networks models only focus on the interactive exploration of material and geometrical properties without further specification for topological dynamization. For facing this problematic, we propose an object-oriented approach to attach specific functionalities to particular pieces of data within the numerical schema. Here, we describe the implementation of a rule-based system for managing objects´ interactions in order to continuously track topological and geometrical changes. Based on this concept, larger design spaces can be developed for the interactive exploration of structural shapes.
