Conference Paper
Full-text available
With the advent of Computer-Aided Design, the design and fabrication of complex free-form shells have become easier to achieve. However, this results in extensive usage of custom-made formworks for the production of shell components and falseworks which provide support for the shell during the construction process. Therefore, a modular design metho...

Our approach to Generative Design converts the problems of design from the geometrical drawing of shapes in a continuous setting to topological decision making about spatial configurations in a discrete setting. The paper presents a comprehensive formulation of the zoning problem as a sub-problem of architectural 3D layout configurations. This form...

The paper presents open-source computational workflows for assessing the "Exposure to sunlight" and "View out" criteria as defined in the European standard EN 17037 "Daylight in Buildings", issued by the European Committee for Standardization. In addition to these factors, the standard document also addresses daylight provision and protection from...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In contrast to the contemporary aesthetic account, Muqarnas are geometrically complex variations of Squinches used for structural integration of rectilinear geometries and curved geometries. Inspired by the historical functionality of Muqarnas, we present a generalized computational workflow for generating dry-fit stacking modules from two-dimensio...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We present a modular generative design framework for design processes in the built environment that provides for the unification of participatory design and optimization to achieve mass-customization and evidence-based design. The paper articulates this framework mathematically as three meta procedures framing the typical design problems as multi-d...
Article
Full-text available
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...

These are the slides of a lecture given at the Open Building Now! 2.0 symposium. https://www.openbuilding.co/open-building-now-2-2021 A recording of this lecture is available at https://youtu.be/51HcapJ5w34
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The paper reports the formulation, the design, and the results of a serious game developed for structuring negotiations concerning the redevelopment of a university campus with various stakeholders. The main aim of this research was to formulate the redevelopment planning problem as an abstract and discrete decision-making problem involving multipl...

Building optimal free-form compression-only adobe shells requires sophisticated molds, scaffolding, critical supervision and an expert labor force as pointed out in [1]; this is because the optimality of a compu-tationally designed shell depends on achieving the right geometric shape in construction. The objective of our research is to find ways to...
