The design approach is to learn from the process through which nature is formed through millions of years by studying the cycle of erosion and sand shifting. The research has gone through many phases of study, simulation and generative design experiments on many levels, starting from urban through architecture to fabrication and materialization. During the research part and while defining the challenges that the Egyptian government faces in building new communities in the desert -as arid areas- the focus was to learn from nature and to generate the solution out of the problem, by studying the cycle of sand solidification and erosion. The procedure involved learning from Siwian people traditional building techniques and material usage to build efficient architecture in the desert. The urban studies on the selected site addressed the possibilities of new urban growth in Siwa.

Cross Validated is a question and answer site for people interested in statistics, machine learning, data analysis, data mining, and data visualization. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. As my msc. I'm specifically interested in the design of compliant mechanisms. In current solutions only topology optimizations TO are used, or evolutionary algorithms EA.
A concerned Autodesk representative pulled me aside at an event recently. But my most recent article was relatively tame, just 1, words in Architect Magazine about algorithms generating building layouts. If anything, it was complimentary of Autodesk. Others in the industry have followed suit, announcing their own generative design tools in superlative laced press releases. None of this is new.
Jump to navigation. It would at first appear that increased access to consumer-grade digital fabrication technologies like 3D printers would increase the scale and scope of their efforts. Unfortunately, the design tools needed to access digital fabrication are designed, primarily, to serve engineers, professional designers or novices with no particular design focus e.
