Architectural Exploration and Creativity using Intelligent Design Agents
Digital Design [21th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-9541183-1-6] Graz (Austria) 17-20 September 2003, pp. 181-186
Architects and designers are normally interested in situations where differences make a difference. This paper presents the results of the developed system of intelligent design agents that supports design exploration and creativity within the domain of architectural shapes. Creativity in architectural design compositions can be viewed as an emergence of new forms and shapes or relationships between forms and shapes from which new concepts can be discovered.
