title Generative Design: Rule-Based Reasoning in Design Process
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary As emphasized by Professor Soddu’s series of pioneer works on generative design, the fundamental theoretical base can be generallyconsidered as a design process that generates design by the initiation, developing and manipulation with designers’ objectives as well as theirassociated set of rules. This process is, in a broad sense, a reasoning process that follows the rules being set forth. In many cases, the rules arecommon logic that governs our reasoning, while in others they are more special rules that restrict the generating process to a confined space.Computer assisted generative design has made impressive progress over the past decade, along with the rapid growing capacity and speed ofcomputers as well as development and discovery of rules, rule setting and effective manipulating schemes and algorithms. After manyimpressive progress and remarkable results has demonstrated from time to time, however, theoretical foundation of such design approach, orthe significance of awareness of such approach has not been thoroughly treated, recognized and discussed, not to mention clearly understood.
