Hols, Jesse (author)
Performance-driven generative design has been commonly used in engineering applications. In addition to performance metrics, aesthetics play an important role in the acceptance of generatively designed forms. When generating these shapes using generative programs, it is not clear in advance what the outcome will be, and thereby what they will...

Spatial ability is malleable and belongs in the preschool. For preschoolers, many analytical activities with one correct answer such as tangram have been developed. Less is known about employing open-ended design assignments to creatively practice spatial thinking. Little attention has been paid to the mutual qualitative differences between...

The project aims to understand the relationship between Computational Design (CD) and Industrial Design (ID) and to investigate future scenarios for CD adoption. CD can be defined as a shift in design representation and thinking, that has significant implications for the design process and its outcome. With CD, machines become active...

In the early project phase, decisions are made when considering a port basin berth layout that affects the outcome and the success of the project. In order to make a decision regarding the berth layout, port planners create a set of variants for comparison and assessment in order to pick the basin berth layout that suits the project goals the...

This Master Thesis is an attempt to address the lack of a sufficient number of affordable and qualitative student housing by creating an experimental, universal design strategy called MODULE+, combining computational design and modular architecture. The strategy consists of three main elements - individually designed flexible timber modules, an...

Across the world, countries are facing housing shortages and the Netherlands is no different. The increasing demand for new housing exceeds the growth rate of the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Current solutions remain small in scale and therefore unsustainable. Multi-family housing is the optimal typology to address the...

Energy use, CO2 emissions, and waste production are all significant causes of environmental issues. The building sector is a major contributor to these problems, specifically the manufacturing of (structural) steel elements. Application of reuse and/or remanufacturing, as done in a circular economy, will reduce these effects. Therefore, these...

In the engineering industry, all structural parts have to be designed as efficient and lightweight as possible. Traditionally, the design process has been carried out through manual design iterations, which can be time-consuming and require significant engineering expertise. Over the last decades however, several computational design techniques...

Transport decision-making determines people’s level of accessibility and deeply influences an individual’s access to social and economic opportunities and the quality of life. Socially vulnerable populations are highly dependent on yet often more likely to have less access to transport services and experience lower accessibility. This creates...

One million homes will be needed in the Netherlands by 2030. Prefabrication in the construction industry can contribute to construct affordable houses, but that results often in standardized and not customized designs. These repetitive designs can be overcome through the introduction of mass-customization in architecture. Computational...

Due to the stricter sustainability requirements and associated governmental regulations, the real estate development process in the Netherlands is becoming increasingly complex, narrowing the real estate developer’s opportunity space and increasing the uncertainty regarding the feasibility of the real estate development project. Recently...

Pavlidou, Stella (author)
In an urban context that needs to be constantly adapted to global crises, population movements, climate change and economic crises, designers and engineers strive to configure solutions that respond to multiple criteria. Within this framework, the concept of generative design is gaining more and more ground in the construction field, allowing...

We spent hours sitting in silence, until he turned his eyes away from the window and spoke: ‘I would like to tell you one last story, It has been decided, there will be no more travels beyond the edge for me.’ In the following days I heard, not one but five, stories of people M encountered – inhabitants of the land he traveled to. Truth be told,...

The Ethereal Engine combines fitness with gaming and VR. By using two actuated armatures and foot platforms, the machine can provide users with force feedback while they enjoy a multitude of simulations that do not feel like a workout at all. Regular physical exercise is very difficult for many people. This can lead to poor health and increased...

The demand for lower construction costs comes at the price of duplicating architectural designs. As a result, the misperception that modular architecture is repetitive prevails. However, the developments in computational design and MMC (modern methods of construction) can suggest a standardized manufacturing approach to provide mass...

Veselý, Ondrej (author)
Despite being relatively novel, generative adversarial networks (GAN) have already been appropriated for application to several problems within the field of architectural and urban generative design. However, the preceding GAN based models for building massing generation make use of only simplified and two dimensional representation of the built...

This thesis concerns the application of different multi-objective optimization (MOO) methods and strategies for finding the optimal envelope for a given building plot and lighting performance indicators. More specifically, the PV potential and daylighting potential of the building are maximized using different optimization solvers. Auxilliary...

As technology advances, architects often employ innovative, non-standard shapes in their designs for the fast-growing number of high-rise buildings. Conversely, climate change is bringing about an increasing number of dangerous wind events causing damage to buildings and their surroundings. These factors further complicate the already...

The Constructing industry around the world is growing exponentially. In the Netherlands itself there is a need of constructing 1 million affordable new homes by 2030. Such a massive demand for new buildings has given rise to a need for a solution for mass customization of architectural configurations. Simple repetition or a badly configured...
