Graph Algorithms for Architectural Design

Thursday, June 11, 2020

If we can use a bubble diagram to study the relationship between different spaces, with the current new Turtle - Terse RDF Triple Language, Neo4j, graph-based programming language and graph algorithms, can it be applied for architectural design, can graph algorithms automate certain analysis to inspire design ideas?

MIT’s Department of Urban Studies & Planning - Tutorials and Tools

Sunday, August 05, 2018

DUSPviz is an initiative of MIT’s Department of Urban Studies & Planning to improve departmental capacity in data analysis, visual representation, and technological communication tools. The mission is to improve planning through the open sharing of knowledge and technology and teach concepts and fundamentals manifested through common communication tools and cutting edge technology.

Most of the DUSPviz workshops and sessions are preserved as tutorials for reference, this page contains DUSPviz tutorials and workshop materials, including videos, handouts, and datasets. While we try to get all material online, certain material does not lend itself to posting. Contact DUSPviz if you have a suggestion for a tutorial or resource, or to request material that might not be online.

10,000 options in one project

"Generative design is essentially a process that mimics nature, using cloud computing to take an evolutionary approach to design.

The process begins by defining a set of goals for your design as well as parameters that will restrict it, then uses a computer to crunch through all of the possible permutations to find the best option.

McKinsey & Company on AI

"Artificial intelligence (AI) seems to be everywhere. We experience it at home and on our phones. Before we know it—if entrepreneurs and business innovators are to be believed—AI will be in just about every product and service we buy and use. In addition, its application to business problem solving is growing in leaps and bounds. And at the same time, concerns about AI’s implications are rising: we worry about the impact of AI-enabled automation on the workplace, employment, and society."  to find out more...

Parametric Design

Sunday, February 25, 2018

"Parametric Design uses defined parameters to generate numerous designs with the aid of algorithms. This can help with productivity as well as innovation to create multiple designs and configurations of products and architecture which would have not surfaced using traditional methods, not to mention all done in a fraction of the time needed with the power of computers. This reading list has an emphasis in architectural design and features literature from 1981 to present to help give an idea of the beginnings of parametric design to current methods." to find out more...

Parametric Modeling with Sverchok

Thursday, November 02, 2017

"Sverchok is a powerful parametric tool for architects, allowing geometry to be programmed visually with nodes. Mesh and geometry programming consists of combining basic elements such as:
  • lists of indexed Vectors representing coordinates (Sverchok vectors are zero based)
  • lists of grouped indices to represent edges and polygons.
  • matrices (user-friendly rotation-scale-location transformations)" to find out more...
