Generative Residence 2017

Architectural generative design inherits and expands traditional design methods, leading architects to seek new ways of creation, fully demonstrating advancement and upgrade of technology, which is an innovation of ideas and means. The undergraduate design studio requires students to master the basic methods of programming and related mathematics knowledge, and explore the algorithmic implementation mechanism […]

Generative Residence 2016

The design studio is conducted on the two levels: site planning and house/apartment design, which constantly inform each other. Classical methods such as multi-agent systems and evolutionary algorithms are studied and adapted to fit bespoke design logics. On the one hand, the students investigated a vast range of computational/mathematical models through programming; on the other […]

Generative Residence 2015

Computational approach to residential architecture in Institute of Architectural Algorithms & Applications (former CAAD Lab) were initiated in the early 1980s. Thirty years after the first attempt, the workshop led by Prof. L. Biao and H. Hao revisited this topic with cutting-edge advantages in algorithms, optimization, and computational geometry. The design is conducted on the […]

optimization of the plots

  This project mainly deals with the problems of the reconstruction of the HuiZhou Village,Ji Cun. It realizes a Huizhou Style residential space generating system, including both village planning and architectural designing. The main concern of the generation system is the self-organizing mechanism of village and pattern extraction of the HuiZhou Style residence. It extracts […]

Rectangular Division
Rectangular Division

There are any algorithms for spatial subdivision, for example: Voronoi divides space into convex hull of polygons, which unmatched too much to normal architectural spaces. The research employs model of multi-agent system, and each plot works as a simple agent similar to rectangle, yet the whole dynamic system presents achievement which couldn’t be implemented by […]

How do virtual dimensions relate with real spaces?  This experiment investigates topological manifolds and Euclidean space. As we know, a 1-dimensional manifold in 2-dimensional space can be projected to a 1-dimensional map (line). Likewise, a 2d manifold in 3d space can be mapped as a 2d map (surface). In order to explore the freedom of […]

The government of Xuzhou, China decided to build a new town for local farmers, that, the living area of the farmers will be gathered in this new town, while the land is accumulated as well, outside of it. This project is a computer generated version of the apartments region of the new town. (based on […]

Case-based Design with SketchUp models
Case-based Design with SketchUp models

The research takes three-dimensional mesh models of architecture as the sources of cases. The computer program is supposed to produce new designs out of cases in the form of 3d mesh models. Most case-based design (CBD) researches on architecture focused on the 2d drawings of architecture. However, 3d models catch more information of buildings than […]
