[Conference] An Evolutionary Design Process: Adaptive-iterative explorations in computational embryogenesis

CAADRIA 2013

Computational embryogenies are a special kind of genotype to phenotype mapping process widely used in exploratory evolutionary systems as they provide the mechanism for generating more complex solutions. This paper focuses on how designers explore embryogenies for specific design scenarios through an adaptive-iterative process. The process is demonstrated for a complex project to generate a prototypical urban farm in Singapore. It is shown that by employing an adaptive-iterative process, the embryogeny can be made progressively more complex and less abstract, thereby allowing the exploration to be guided by the designer.
