[Conference] Evolutionary Design of Housing: A template for development and evaluation procedures
Evolutionary design is an approach that evolves populations of design variants through the iterative application of a set of computational procedures. This paper proposes a template and set of techniques for creating the development and evaluation procedures. The template defines a clear structure for the procedures, while the techniques provide specific strategies for generating models and handling constraints. A demonstration is presented where the template is used to create development and evaluation procedures for a large complex residential housing project.
