Generative design is becoming an increasingly popular method for quickly exploring and determining design options. With the help of algorithms, the process mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to how we design, testing and improving with each new design iteration. For the AECO industry, generative design, also known as computational design or parametric design, is transforming how designers, engineers, and construction teams think and build. One of the earliest examples of generative design for AECO was for the 2008 Olympics’ Beijing National Stadium and National Aquatics Centre. Both structures have become two of the most iconic sports arenas due to their unique and innovative design, only possible with the use of generative design technology.
