Abstract

The use of parametric design optimization should not be merely a solution for design challenges, rather, a medium of reflection. The research explores how to conceive feasible design schemas and formulate appropriate parametric models capable of fully exploiting potential performance improvements through an iteratively reflective design synthesis with parametric design optimization. Taking a courtyard design as a case study, the paper describes three alternative parametric models for natural lighting optimization. A comparative analysis of the populations is presented, showing that the alternative parametric modelling approaches have a progressive positive impact on the quality of design performance.
