Framework For Design: The Study Of Parametrics For Contextually Responsive High Rise Design
MetadataShow full item record
The following thesis investigates parametric thinking and evolutionary solving principles in the creation of a framework for residential high rise design. Site specific parameters such as site access (pedestrian and vehicular), views, acknowledgement of neighbours, or climatic, such as natural day lighting and ventilation, should be used to inform the design. Parametric software is used as a tool to generate designs dynamically. With the help of an evolutionary solver component, the design potential is augmented by generating multiple iterations which are analyzed for their success or failure in an effort to provide an appropriate response within the context of the site. The framework is tested on a site located at the corner of Duplex Avenue and Eglinton Avenue West in Toronto, Canada.
