I’ve been spending more time looking at generative design in recent months (although this is a relative thing… I’ve still only posted once about Dynamo, for instance). So far a big chunk of my research has been understanding what’s going on in different parts of the company with respect to generative design.
As part of this effort, several months ago I chatted with Anthony Hauck who heads up a team focused on generative design in the AEC space. He talked to me about Project Akaba – an early generative tool for space planning – and its successor, Project Fractal. At the time Project Fractal was still in the planning phase, but things have moved on considerably since then.
Just today I was happy to discover that Anthony and team started a blog around the time of AU2015, and have been posting some really interesting information to it.
For instance, here’s a video they posted a couple of weeks ago that shows some of the progress they’re making with Fractal:
If you’re interested in generative design – especially in terms of how it’s used in AEC – then I strongly recommend checking this blog regularly.
