Project Summary

A comprehensive library for supporting various design computation functions

--

Design computation has been a rapidly evolving field both in terms of engineering as well as architecture or in other words primarily geometrical. It covers a very well connected set of topics including shape representation and generation, parametric and generative algorithms which themselves depend on a parametric framework, digital modeling, simulation and geometrical analysis of form and shape grammar.

In spite of the large amount of literature and academic research on the same, there exists no open source or commercial application framework for performing these computations. In particular even though there is some activity going on in the field of form generation, there is hardly any common platform for implementation of various algorithms (genetic, evolutionary and otherwise) and generative methods of planning, layout etc dealing with the more rigorous parts of form generation. Also it is surprising that there exists no good system for major theories/ techniques such as Shape grammar or Pattern Language. Even critical necessities such as parametric geometry, pattern generation, are supported by no open source CAD application. The aim of the project is the implementation of a design computation library (DCL) which would enable researchers to deal with mathematical and computational aspects of design more easily, significantly reducing the reinvention of the wheel. The range of implementation is mostly in the realm of rigorous space planning, parametric and generative geometry, and shape grammar.
