title 
A Spatial Reasoning Framework Based on NonManifold Topology

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 3, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal, 1113 September 2019, pp. 7180 
summary 
NonManifold Topology (NMT) has been previously proven to be an appropriate representation of interconnected architectural and spatial structures. This paper further explores the suitability of NMT for spatial reasoning purposes. A literature survey is done to identify the necessary components of a spatial reasoning framework, and an adaptation of such framework based on NMT is presented. This paper also describes the implementation of an NMTbased spatial reasoning framework, its integration into the Topologic software library which the authors develop, as well as the implementation challenges. Finally, a pathfinding study case on an NMT model, which has been generated from a Building Information Modelling (BIM) structure, is presented and analysed.
