Abstract: This paper presents the Early Design Configurator (EDC) application, which generates and displays layouts in the Early Design Phase. The layout generation requires the floor plan of the building, the Program of Requirements and Design Rules. Layouts are automatically generated by an evolutionary algorithm, which processes the Program of Requirements and Design Rules in its fitness function. Different layouts can be produced by applying the evolutionary algorithm multiple times with different input parameters. This process is not intended to generate ready-to-build Building Information Models, but to capture the information of the Early Design Phase for the building life cycle.
