Abstract

Some architects use design processes that conceive each architecture as a model to be optimized with tools borrowed from various disciplines. Therefore, modelling in architecture may assume the role of an interpretative tool for complex phenomena, capable of guiding a design towards its best possible configuration. Today, we can work with discrete data with extreme efficiency. Consequently, we can also create models in architectural design with a new approach that aims to contain and generate large amounts of information. It is precisely by analyzing that information, with various tools of applied mathematics and through the strength of correlation, that modelling may interpret complex phenomena. In both approaches, the search for optimization may shape the purpose of modelling in architectural design. This contribution addresses the evolution and role of optimization in architectural design with an interdisciplinary approach
