English abstract:
Applying different typologies to the same building yields a
number of options concerning extensibility and circulation.
However, it is hard to rate and compare these in order to
find the most fitting one for a specific building task at hand.
In this paper, we wish to work towards this goal using a
showcase in which we generate and rate a large number of
buildings in order to find out whether certain typologies
prevail among the fittest solutions. On a technical level, we
contribute (1.) a simple cell-space grammar that generates
building volumes, given a preference for different axes in
which form can develop - orthogonal, diagonal and vertical,
(2.) a rating procedure which infers a fitness for every
solution, based on (a.) the assignment of functions to parts
of the generated building and computation of adjacencies
between these and (b.) the extensibility of the building
along its axes. Typologies are attributed in a post-step, as
part of a manual analysis. Our results show a preference for
the compact/central building type, as dictated by the use of
adjacencies for rating a building.
