Abstract: This research pursues an experimental implementation of an analysis framework in conjunction with an optimization framework for building design. The frameworks tie authoring and analysis tools together under one umbrella. In a prototype, the data flow uses a mix of proprietary and publicised file formats, exchanged through publicly accessible interfaces. An analysis framework brokers between the parametric authoring tool and the analysis tools. An optimization framework controls the processes between the authoring tool and parametric engine on one side and the optimization algorithm on the other. The prototype allowed testing assumptions about workflow, implementation, usability and general feasibility of the pursued approach during the SmartGeometry 2012 event.
