This paper deals with an application of optimization in architectural design. Formally, we consider the problem of optimizing a function that can only be evaluated through an expensive oracle. We assume that the analytical expression of the function is unknown and first-order information is not available. This situation frequently occurs when each function(More)
Computational design tools in architecture currently fall into two broad categories: Tools for representation and tools for generative design, including scripting. However, both categories address only relatively methodical aspects of designing, and do little to support the design freedom and serendipitous creativity that, for example, is afforded by(More)
