In this chapter, we’ll look at key concepts that are essential to understanding generative design and how Project Refinery works.
We will look at the following topics:
the fundamental concepts needed to understand generative design
a definition of generative design in the context of AEC
an introduction to Refinery
examples of using generative design to solve design problems
common approaches used
Let’s start by first looking at something you’re very likely to be aware of and already using today: computational design.
