||Design by Algorithms: A Generative design system for Modular Housing Arrangement
||This paper explores the applicability of algorithmic design in a real-world architectural context; through the creation of a generative system for modular housing arrangements (MHAS). It is a user interface in Autodesk Maya based on stochastic search to produce various alternatives for the modular housing arrangements. Through the UI, the designer can enter parameters and rules, and then the MHAS will produce 3D alternatives according to the specified frame conditions and renders a selected view. This generative system is expected to facilitate the design process, generate unexpected solutions for well specified rules, and save time consumption in the early design process.
