title A Parametric-Typological Tool: More Diversity for Mass Produced Single Family Homes Through Parametrized Design and Customized Mass Production
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 409-416

summary We present a research program in which a plug-in tool for the generation of vertically stacked single family homes is developed and implemented in the software Autodesk Revit Architecture. The parametrized typology will provide for more variety, individuality and appropriateness in the homes themselves and also in the urban structures created by them. CAAM methods furthermore drastically reduce the production costs. The research is government-funded and sponsored by the building and software industry with the aim to both extend the functionality of an existing software package and to build a prototype urban development.
