title Simulation-Driven Design System

summary This paper presents a design process efficiently involving parametric design, realistic physical simulation and rapid-prototyping fabrication for contextual shape adaptation. This case study focuses on lighting simulation for the specific problem of solar energy harvesting. Inspired by the phototropic mechanism, the ability of plants to grow according to the availability of light, an innovative design technique is defined, taking its root in the morphogenetic design school [Hensel, 2004].
