Generating and Exploring Design Variations for Architectural and Urban Layouts
|Abstract||This thesis focuses on generating and exploring design variations for architectural and urban layouts. I propose to study this general problem in three selected contexts.
First, I introduce a framework to generate many variations of a facade design that look similar to a given facade layout. Starting from an input image, the facade is hierarchically segmented and labeled with a collection of manual and automatic tools. The user can then model constraints that should be maintained in any variation of the input facade design. Subsequently, facade variations are generated for different facade sizes, where multiple variations can be produced for a certain size.
Second, I propose a method for a user to understand and systematically explore goo... (more)
