Computational Design

Summary

This project develops interactive tools that enable efficient exploration of design spaces according to a given set of requirements. Shape exploration is often formulated as a constrained optimization problem that takes fabrication-oritented constraints and aesthetic requirements into account. We specifically explore computational design strategies for complex material systems that combine suitable geometric abstractions, efficient numerical solvers, and user-in-the-loop interaction paradigms for effective design exploration.
