In performance-based architectural design, most existing techniques and design approaches to assisting designers are primarily for a single design problem such as building massing, spatial layouts, or facade design. However, architectural design is a synthesis process that considers multiple design problems. Thus, for achieving an overall improveme...


... Previous studies demonstrated that the optimization of EvoMass can provide designers with multiple high-performing solutions that would be challenging for human designers to conceive. This also highlights the utility of EvoMass in stimulating architects' design exploration and helping them overcome design fixation (Chen et al., 2022;Wang, 2021). In this study, the combination of EvoMass for building massing and façade designs further increases the complexity of the design optimization task. ...
