Supporting free-form design using a component based representation: an overview
This paper reviews the development of an interactive evolutionary design system (IEDS) for conceptual design, which integrates an agent based ‘build and evolve’ approach with a component based representation. It builds upon the previous work done by the authors involving interactive design of bench-like structures and describes the extension of the system to handle the design of free-form urban furniture. The extensions include integration of solution clustering and a free-form design rule-base, within the IEDS. The presented results highlight the various advantages of combining an agent based solution assembly method with a component based representation. Categories and Subject Descriptors J.m [Miscellaneous] I.2.m [Artificial Intelligence]: Miscellaneous General Terms Design, Algorithms. Keywords Interactive Evolutionary Design, Software Agents, Aesthetics
