Abstract
The paper describes a cloud based design-model version control system for supporting manual and semi-automated generative design via a web-based platform which enables exploration and retrieval of designs and also the solicitation of users・evaluations of them to enable interactive genetic algorithms to produce preference optimised design options.The current commercial building design context and supporting CAD software state-of-the-art is considered, the review also covers software development based version control systems, identifying unmet needs in the former which could be solved by the latter which is the motivation for this work. An example structural frame design problem is explored, discussing how the system functions to support performance based creative design via exploration, including visualisation and data dashboard of a design session. We conclude that such systems addresses pressing software infrastructure requirements for the AEC industry especially for expanding the range of design options managed particularly for early-stage design activities.
