The paper proposes a generative design workflow for three major hospital layout planning steps to satisfy multiplex configurational requirements. The initial step is stacking through clustering functional spaces into floor plans, for which a spectral method is presented. Subsequently, a novel simultaneous process of zoning and routing is proposed a...

Hospital facilities are known as functionally complex buildings. There are usually configurational problems that lead to inefficient transportation processes for patients, medical staff, and/or logistics of materials. The Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) is a well-known problem in the field of Operations Research from the category of the facility...

This paper introduces a Discrete-Event Simulation (DES) tool developed as a parametric CAD program for validating a program of requirements (PoR) for hospital space planning. The DES model simulates the procedures of processing of patients treated by doctors, calculating patient throughput and patient waiting times, based on the number of doctors,...

Most of the architectural design problems are basically real-parameter optimization problems. So, any type of evolutionary and swarm algorithms can be used in this field. However, there is a little attention on using optimization methods within the computer aided design (CAD) programs. In this paper, we present Optimus, which is a new optimization...

Architectural design is a process that considers many objectives to satisfy. In general, these objectives are conflicting with each other. On the other hand, many design parameters are associated with these conflicting objectives, too. Therefore, architectural design is described as a complex task. To handle the complexity, computational optimizati...

Floating neighborhoods are innovative and promising urban areas for challenges in the development of cities and settlements. However, this design task requires a lot of considerations and technical challenges. Computational tools and methods can be beneficial to tackle the complexity of floating neighborhood design. This paper considers the design...

Recently, multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) have been extensively used to solve multi-objective optimization problems (MOPs) since they have the ability to approximate a set of non-dominated solutions in reasonable CPU times. In this paper, we consider the bi-objective quadratic assignment problem (bQAP), which is a variant of the cla...

The aim of the research is to find a feasible set of theatre hall design alternatives for two objectives, which are the total cost and the reverberation time, subject to several constraints. We formulate the problem as a multi-objective realparameter constrained optimization problem. To handle this problem, we investigated two different optimizatio...

This paper presents the results obtained by NSGA-II and jDEMO on a restaurant design optimization in the conceptual phase. A multi-objective problem is formulated by considering the minimization of investment and the maximization of customer count and maximization of visual perception, subject to several constraints. The main problem requires the c...

In Turkey as elderly care facility numbers increase, regulations regarding facility planning, delivery of services at the usage stage and applications are published. In these regulations it is seen that architectural/interior design criteria under physical characteristics title don’t consider wisely the expectations and needs of the user. Moreover, looking into the literature while there are many sources about elderly health problems and life quality from the medical perspective; studies on the well-being of elderly in relation to architectural space qualities are quite limited. Since elderly people are more sensitive to physical and psychological environments’ negativity, possible physical and psychological illnesses can be related with these negative conditions. Therefore, providing high indoor environmental quality (IEQ) conditions that support well-being and life quality of elderly is mandatory. With this object in mind, a sample room will be modelled (in accordance with IEQ) by using Performative Computational Architecture (PCA). The model will be simulated for different scenarios (different climate, room geometry, window-wall ratio, building elements etc.) and design parameters (material, glazing type etc.) for IEQ components (lighting, humidity, thermal comfort, air quality and acoustics) to obtain the most energy and cost efficient solutions. Sample model will be adapted to three different performance scenario in terms of cost and energy. Both the model and scenario outputs will be publicly shared with a (user-friendly) webpage and design guideline. Therefore, anyone (researchers, architects, practioner, inspector etc.) who needs/wants to have learn more about elderly rooms can find the technical information and plan layouts of energy & cost optimized elderly rooms with obtained IEQ requirements. As population ages, number and variety of elderly care rise so should the quality of the services. This project’s outputs will be providing the required interior design knowledge to increase quality of elderly care rooms in terms of IEQ requirements while considering energy and cost. Optimized outputs are adapted to Turkey conditions and flexible to different scenarios and preferences to enhance knowledge and experience on interior designs of elderly care facilities. Besides, this project will provide the opportunity to experience and coordinate a multidisciplinary team to propose architectural solutions with contemporary design methods (such as PCA). Thus both the coordinator and the team will enlarge their skills, network and structural knowledge on this topic that will help them for their further studies.

Optimus is a plug-in for Grasshopper 3d algorithmic modeling environment to use in architectural design optimization and building performance optimization. The first release of Optimus is employing "Self-Adaptive Differential Evolution with Ensemble of Mutation Strategies". In this way, Optimus can not only adapt Crossover and Mutation rates for different problems but also empowers the algorithm while searching for near-optimal solutions. Optimus v1.0.0 (beta) is tested with several benchmark problems and with a design optimization problem. Comparing with other existing single-objective optimization algorithms available for Grasshopper 3d, Optimus presented much better results.
