title Experimenting with Building Footprint Formation and Volume Optimization: A constraint programming approach for the optimization of buildingvolumes based on combinatorial rectangular footprint formations
source FUTURE CITIES [28th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-9-6] ETH Zurich (Switzerland) 15-18 September 2010, pp.419-427
summary This paper is focusing on integrating footprint formations of buildingvolumes into an existing research of building-volume optimization (BVO). While earlier BVO experiments concentrated on single rectangular floor-area units per floor, the current BVO model allows footprint assemblies of combinatorial rectangular floor-area units per floor. The aspect of using these combinatorial floor assemblies is to provide more flexibility into the shaping of possible building-volumes and thus a more realistic approach to building-volume design. The investigation regarding combinatorial floor-area units concentrated on running time in reference to amount of allowable unit combinations per floor and the ability to provide close to optimal solutions through additional search runs. Results of the experiments documented a sharp increase of running time due to the additional allocation of floor-area units, while the BVO model was improved through the ability to generate combinatory footprint formation and offer close to optimal solutions.
