title Potential Use of Structural Layout Optimization at the Conceptual Design Stage
source International Journal of Architectural Computing vol. 10 - no. 1, 13-32
summary Despite recent developments in computer-aided design in architecture, both in terms of form generation techniques and performance-based design tools, there still appears to be polarization between the ‘visual’ and the ‘technical’ elements of design. Two causes of this are discussed: long-standing tradition within the discipline and perception of design as primarily a visual exercise. Structural layout optimization is a technique which enables automatic identification of optimal arrangements of structural elements in frames. As the technique appears to have the potential to help reduce the polarization between the visual and the technical elements of design, it can be considered as an ‘integrative’ form generation tool. Applications of the technique are considered via three design examples, demonstrating both its potential and areas where refinement is required before it is suitable for application in practice.
