This research by Nixon Wonoto examines the implementation of structural optimization in the architectural schematic design phase; investigate the accessibility and usability of existing architectural structural optimization tools.
This thesis by Soo Jung Woo explores the use of Topology Optimization in architectural design by implementing a Bidirectional Evolutionary Structural Optimization type TO script as a guide to create a composition of discrete members with complex geometries.
This thesis by Aitor Almaraz aims to explore the possibilities of the implementation of parametric design as a linking tool for architectural spatial decisions, structure and costs -in economic and energetic terms- to analyze and determine their performance.
In this study by Viktoria Henriksson and Maria Hult, rationalization in terms of different surface discretization methods has been a main focus. It also explores multi-objective optimization. The structure is designed parametrically in the Rhinoceros plugin Grasshopper and structurally analysed with the FE add-on Karamba.
