Abstract [en]

The implementation of computer design within the building industry has created new possibilities for creating digital tools for users such as architects. There is however a lack of easy to use, efficient digital tools to aid and explore design alternatives for architects when using products within the wood building industry. This paper demonstrates how a modular facade system in wood can be adapted for facade configurations in different contexts by using computational design. The goal is to develop a digital design tool that is easy to use and provides the architect with a high degree of freedom to create project-unique facades. The design tool is developed with computational design methods for flexible and adaptive design. In parallel, assessment is made that the design solutions can be manufactured smoothly and quickly via digitalization and industrial production. The result of this research shows that the façade system can be customized by using parametric programming methods, and thus enable architects to design facades for different contexts. The design tool was verified with the architect partners concerning usability and manufacturers concerning production.
