Urban Design Optimization
Design approaches that include generative and parametric features increase designers’ ability to explore larger sets of potential solutions. Computational optimization (CO) is being increasingly adopted to solve complex design problems, from energy consumption to structural performance.The use of CO techniques at the urban design (UD) scale, however, has been limited compared to architecture due to increased complexity and computation requirements. The work described in this poster is part of larger research that hypothesizes that CO can be useful in UD, particularly when associated with generative design systems and evaluation metrics. It consists of an experiment that involves the formulation, evaluation, and optimization of urban fabric configurations according to pre-defined evaluation metrics.
