||In our research we have experimented AI procedures in a new strategicapproach to the management of design processes in buildings and built-upenvironment. The challenge was to evaluate, during design operations, thetotal quality of the future built-up environment. We measured this qualityas the difference betweenvirtual scenarios and collective imaginary world.These virtual scenarios were generated by simulation procedures of theevolution of the buildinglenvironment system related to specific logicalprocesses of design. To achieve that we produced, using some originalresearch software, many different scenarios of possible evolutions of thesame project. Our objective was to evaluate the different contributions ofeach specific design function and their conflicts (from aesthetics to struc-tural and technological problems, from cost to functional use) to obtain amore interesting logical approach to design, construction and urban envi-ronment evolution.In this conference, we intend to present two examples of this experimen-tation defining not a specific solution but a possible logical approach forthe management of design. And we will also try to walk in a new not-ex-plored land of design processes that maximise the benefits of IT: thepossibility of designing the evolution in the move and not only its singleequilibrium. The first experimentation concerns the construction of com-mercial buildings using steel. The second one is a dynamic frameworkproject to design and control the evolution and the increasing complexityof the built-up environment of a typical Italian medieval town.Key words:AI; evolution; (morpho)genetic design; total quality; logical approach;future scenarios
