title CONTROLING DESIGN VARIATIONS - DESIGNING A SEMANTIC CONTROLER FOR A GENERATIVE SYSTEM
source Sousa, JP, Xavier, JP and Castro Henriques, G (eds.), Architecture in the Age of the 4th Industrial Revolution - Proceedings of the 37th eCAADe and 23rd SIGraDi Conference - Volume 2, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 11-13 September 2019, pp. 369-376
summary This article will describe the recent steps in the development of a computational generative system based on the selection and combination of ordinary architectural elements. Built as a Grasshopper definition, the system was conceived to generate designs of architectural fašades and to produce models, physical and digital, for didactic use. More specifically, The paper will address the conception of controlling devices, that is, the parts of the computational system that govern design variations. This process involved two complementary actions: first, the definition of a clear organizational logic, where elements can be represented as a data structure that encompasses classes, sub-classes, sets, libraries and attributes; secondly, the establishment of means to operate the variations through the use of filters and heuristics based on visual patterns, allowing varying degrees of automation and user control. It will be argued that such organizational model paves the way to increase the number of design possibilities in the future and to and provide means to integrate of architectural criteria into the generation process. This research has received the support of CNPq.
