This excellent video by Generative Components starting with the a classic statement:

All your assumptions are changed…..

Generative Design also changes the design work process. Often I wonder about the nature of this change. It’s implied here to be

Imagine > Explore > Design > Experiment

J Parrish states some important benefits

We want to create forms that we could not create other wise .
Establish the principles and refine the form,…because we spend a lot of time refining form

Lars Hesselgren makes an important point about generative design

Changes the way we think about design

I like these :

  • REMOVE – Limits
  • COMBINE – Intuition and Logic
  • ACCELERATE – Interaction

The last part gives some indication of Generative Components view on the design process:

  1. Model Geometry
  2. Capture Relationships
  3. Define Constraints
  4. Generate Form
  5. Remove Limits
