Vignesh Kaushik presented a paper on 'An Evolutionary Design Process: Adaptive-iterative explorations in computational embryogenesis' at The 18th International CAADRIA conference held in May 2013 at the National University of Singapore.
The Parametric Architecture Seminar explored the use of parametric methodologies within architectural and engineering design processes. I had delivered a 20-min talk on using computational design for generating a spatially complex urban farm network in Singapore.
This chapter focuses on the process of creating embryogenies for a complex design problem through a sequential process of adaptive-iterative exploration. By employing an adaptive-iterative process, the embryogeny can be made progressively more complex and less abstract, thereby allowing the exploration to be better guided by the designer.
Evolutionary design is an approach that evolves populations of design variants through the iterative application of a set of computational procedures. Since most designers have limited programming skills, we need to be able to define the key computational procedures without having to write computer code.
