title Translating Fengshui into algorithmic design - A digital tool to examine the impact of Fengshui on Siheyuan’s layout
source Werner, L and Koering, D (eds.), Anthropologic: Architecture and Fabrication in the cognitive age - Proceedings of the 38th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, TU Berlin, Berlin, Germany, 16-18 September 2020, pp. 391-400
summary In continuation of our previous work on the design principles of traditional Beijing Siheyuan courtyard housing and their implementation into computational algorithms, this paper investigates the impact of the Fengshui theory on its layout. In particular, we will present the development of a Grasshopper algorithm able to examine Siheyuan houses' fortune status according to their layout. We have verified the algorithm by using Siheyuan precedence from the ancient Beijing map and measuring surveys on extant buildings. Our findings highlight that most Siheyuan houses were designed to be auspicious even though other forces were working against
