||Between Thermal Efficiency and Formal Expression: Tropism as a Method for Layering Control in Generative Design
||The definition of architectonic features often requires negotiation between diverse classes of design conditions merging in particular elements. The use of encompassing concepts opens possible approaches for layering control between these assorted factors. This study presents a method for the implementation of tropism as a conceptual gathering procedure in social housing windows definition, aiming to enhance the relationship between building and context in terms of spatial comfort and formal expression.
