Generative algorithm is a tool that allows designers to explore possibilities of parametric design in realm of architecture. The aim of this paper by Parag Sarwate and Akshay Patil is to understand and explore the application of generative modeling based on biomimicry principles to architectural design.
It is also necessary to explore how the biological principles can be applied and realized in computational environment with the help of algorithmic approach. This paper outlines the relationship between biomimicry principles, generative algorithm and their architectural applications.
The main contribution of this article is in combining the parametric tools of generative algorithms for the design parameters of built environment. The paper also investigates new strategies and tools for architectural design that are inspired from biological processes.
