title Manifold Fašades - A grammar-based approach for the adaptation of office buildings into housing
source Herneoja, Aulikki; Toni Ísterlund and Piia Markkanen (eds.), Complexity & Simplicity - Proceedings of the 34th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, 22-26 August 2016, pp. 189-198
summary This article focuses on the use of shape grammars in rehabilitation processes to transform existing, obsolete building stocks into required building types. It is described how a grammar-based transformation methodology can lead to the development of a design tool that enables the exploration of preliminary design solutions and the evaluation of their impact in terms of massing, functional programme and, eventually, cost and energetic behaviour. The goal is to assess the capacity of an existing building to be adapted to a different use. The article is focused on the transformation grammar. In particular, it is investigated the transformation of "office building types" into "residential building types", aiming at defining a quicker and more informed decision-making process. Future work will be concerned with evaluating the performance of the solutions generated by the grammar.
