Abstract

The project’s objective is to study spatial-structural design processes and to support the involved actors; to that end a computational tool so-called Research Engine (RE) has been developed. The RE seeks to fulfill four aims: (1) to study the influence of transformations methods on design instances; (2) to study the influence of transformations methods on the behavior of other transformations methods; (3) to aid in finding "best compromised" or interesting spatial and structural design instances; and (4) to serve as design support tool, providing useful information in early stages of the design process. The paper describes the RE framework and its implementation. Case-studies are presented which showcase the RE’s capabilities and demonstrate that it does fulfill the previously stated aims.
