An evolutionary architectureAn evolutionary architecture (PDF)

“An Evolutionary Architecture was published in January 1995 to coincide with an exhibition of the same name at the Architectural Association. It concentrates on the work of Diploma Unit 11 run by John and Julia Frazer (with Pete Silver and Guy Westbrook) between 1989 and 1996, but includes formative work by the author dating back to his diploma prize-winning project at the AA in 1969 and related research work at Cambridge University.”

Architectural Geometry - Bentley Institute Press Architectural Geometry – Bentley Institute Press (in library)

“This book has been written as a textbook for students of architecture or industrial design. It comprises material at all levels, from the basics of geometric modeling to the cutting edge of research. During the architectural journey through geometry, topics typically reserved for a mathematically well-trained audience are addressed in an easily understandable way. These include central concepts on freeform curves and surfaces, differential geometry, kinematic geometry, mesh processing, digital reconstruction, and optimization of shapes.”

Genetic Programming + Unfolding Embryology in Automated Layout Planning

Genetic programming and unfolding embryology in automated layout planning (PDF)

Doulgerakis, A.; (2007) Genetic Programming + Unfolding Embryology in Automated Layout Planning. Masters thesis, UCL (University College London)

“Automated layout planning aims to the implementation of computational methods for the generation and the optimization of floor plans, considering the spatial configuration and the assignment of activities. Sophisticated strategies such as Genetic Algorithms have been implemented as heuristics of good solutions. However, the generative forces that derive from the social structures have been often neglected. This research aims to illustrate that the data that encode the layout’s social and cultural generative forces, can be implemented within an evolutionary system for the design of residential layouts.”
