Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture

Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture

As designers in the design sector tech like a BIM have widened the scope. But next key step today is Generative Design. The question is: How will Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture?

In each architectural design a range of demands accordingly identified. The plan is presently the spatial plan. Indoors however encompass a number of beds, buildings and efforts. It may take weeks to produce a design which also fulfils all of these conditions. Hence This is Generative Design’s rescue technology.

Generative design uses artificial intelligence to create design alternatives that take real-world demands into consideration. So, It allows designers to explore thousands of designs in less time. Artificial intelligence is driven by the newest wave of generative. With the increasing number of machine learning technologies, designers explore deep learning in the state of the art. Generative Design presents a three-component structure:

1) a generative geometry model that defines a design space of iterations.

2) a series of measures that describe the goals of the design problem.

3) a genetic algorithm to search through the design space to find possibilities. 

There is not a single aim that designers try to go after. But, different objectives come into the picture while making a floor plan for the building or space. The best example is Autodesk’s new Toronto office design. The opinions of employees set six primary goals:

  • employee work style preferences
  • adjacency preferences
  • low distraction
  • interconnectivity
  • daylight and 
  • Outside views. 

This step generated 10,000 design iterations and adapted them to arrive at a final office design.

Automative Floor Plan Generation

A floor plan is an important document that illustrates what a finished building will resemble. It has technical drawings like construction methods, window ot door schedules, or a foundation plan. Designing a floor plan is iterative or requires extensive human labor. A generative software can develop spaces with the input of the end-users. In a professional setting, the creation of floor plans is a revision process between a customer or an architect. Currently, several computer programs aid humans in floor plan design. But, these programs face limitations in automating the entire creative process. Such automation generates many floor plan solutions, speeding the process. Generative design tools can take charge of repetitive planning processes. Clients will have a cost-effective way of obtaining otherwise expensive architectural services.

Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture
Explore and Design your Space with Us

We know that today, people want to involve themselves in the co-creative process of designing their space. Uniworks Designs value the wishes or inputs of clients in transforming their dream space into an architectural reality. 

Our team is working on a mobile phone app that provides many iterations of an architectural plan with the help of simple user inputs like:

  • site area
  • the number of rooms and their types
  • the boundary of the site
  • and the sizes of each space
Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture

On the left: Connecting all the rooms within the space as a user input.

On the right: Distinct iterations of floor plans using Generative Design- Reshaping the Architecture Technology.

We plan the space per the goals or the geographical direction of the site. An advanced combination of current State of Art Deep Learning or Genetic Algorithms helps us in this approach.
