||A new high-rise building, when inserted in an existing urban environment, cannot have all the floor plans identical since the visual
and environmental constraints change from floor to floor due to the interference of neighboring buildings, sun light, prevailing
wind and noise. So how can we design a building that takes into consideration all this variables? How can digital design tools help?
We believe that a building like that can be designed constructing facade maps which allow a floor by floor analysis considering
visual, wind, noise and sun light constraints. We believe that facade maps analysis and their superposition provide clues of how each
floor plan can be built to provide comfort and to take most advantage of the view. (DELPINO, 2014).
We believe that variation techniques such as tessellation and morphing can provide the formal bases for such design. We believe that
digital design tools are vital both for analysis as well as for designing this type of building. (IWAMOTO, 2009, p. 35-59; MOUSSAVI,
