Abstract

We describe here methodologies for embedding geometric and topological operations in contemporary Building Information Modeling (BIM) Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, along with the computational implementation of domain specific evaluations; this is done to achieve the integration between spatial-based spatial properties evaluations and architectural design workflows. This research describes methodologies and computational technologies used for the development of a computational design assistant in the context of laboratory buildings in Preliminary Concept Design (PCD).
