A-BIM: Algorithmic-based Building Information Modelling

Algorithmic-Based BIM

In this thesis, author defines, explores and evaluates A-BIM in the context of architectural design. Through a case study, she compares A-BIM to two other design approaches, namely an algorithmic approach to geometry-based CAD and a manual BIM approach.

Combinatorial Design Non-parametric computational design strategies

Combinatorial Design

This paper by Jose Sanchez outlines a framework and conceptualization of combinatorial design. Combinatorial design is a term coined to describe non-parametric design strategies that focus on the permutation and patterning of discrete units.

Discrete vs. Discretized Growth, Discretized Fabrication of Geometries Generated with Cellular Growth Simulations

Discrete vs. Discretized Growth

This paper by Christoph Klemmt, Igor Pantic, Andrei Gheorghe and Adam Sebestyen, propose a methodology of discretized free-form Cellular Growth algorithms in order to utilize the emerging qualities of growth simulations for architectural design.

Discrete Computaional Methods for Roboic Addiive Manufacturing

Robotic Manufacturing

This paper by Gilles Retsin and Manuel Jiménez García is part of a larger, emerging body of research into large scale 3D Printing. The research attempts to develop a computational design method specifically for large-scale 3D printing of architecture.
