Designing plans: a control based coordination model

By K Alexiou and T Zamenopoulos

Abstract

In this paper we discuss artificial plan designing as a research field that deals with thedevelopment and use of computational models to support the generation of designdescriptions in architecture and urban planning. We discuss some crucial methodologicalissues and we present a model for artificial design generation based on learning controlmethodologies. The design problem is defined as a search for \"coordinated\" solutions(changes) that satisfy distributed domain requirements and views expressed by human orartificial agents. The model is simulated for a land use and layout plan design problemseen within the context of a hypothetical urban development assignment
