MASSING HEURISTICS

typology-aware generative masterplanning

We have developed this tool to support the exploration of urban design, stimulate the imagination and allow appropriate decision-making.

We encode the specific context, constraints and objectives to explore the design space.

Our parametric models include common urban morpho-typologies and we can develop new ones together.

We then generate a multitude of plausible solutions and question each of them through the prism of key performance indicators. (check out URBANYTICS)

Biomimetic processes such as multi-criteria optimization allow us to find the best scenarios, which we communicate via a dedicated online 3D visualization interface.

 

* In computer science, artificial intelligence, and mathematical optimization, a heuristic (from Greek εὑρίσκω "I find, discover") is a technique designed for solving a problem more quickly when classic methods are too slow, or for finding an approximate solution when classic methods fail to find any exact solution.
