title Multiplying Architectural Layouts and 3D Forms: Interplay of Necessity and Contingency in Architectural Modeling
source Global Design and Local Materialization[Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures / ISBN 978-3-642-38973-3] Shanghai, China, July 3-5, 2013, pp. 338-346.
summary Since 1960s there were many models for architectural layout planning which formulated design activities as problem-solving. On the other hand, various form-finding models had emerged after 1980s. The former seeks the necessity of architectural modeling as an objective science, while the latter encourages the contingent characters of individual modeling. This paper proposes a method of integrating the two families of models. A commutation channel is defined thus every member in one family can work with any member in the other. Therefore the models of architectural layouts can “multiple” the models of 3D forms, which leads to rich variety of architectural structures and forms. The method is implemented and tested in Java.
