本研究應用數位設計工具，以模矩化的概念衍生設計，發展出一套配置生產的自動機制。此機制快速生產平面配置的結果，除了輔助傳統平面設計的過程，也提升了建築設計的效率與品質。自動配置的系統除了可以應用在建築設計過程之外，再搭配相關的資訊科技，便可以達到使用者參與設計過程的可能－這正是本研究所追求的，也將是資訊時代對於創造居住空間的新策略。 The changes in society and economy affect people’s way of thinking which makes the structures of society and family nowadays greatly different from the past. However, the construction method of modern residential space does not allow easy re-construction as the users change the function. I t is consequently hoped that the residential type in the future can have breakthrough changes. Therefore, the research objective is to establish a measure for residential space’s basic unit, using modulization as the basis, and develop a mechanism and method that allow flexible use of the space. In addition to easier use of the space, the aim is to allow possible flexible construction of the space in the future depending on the user’s needs as space plan is modulized.
“Structured Flexible Space” is the space constructed through modulized planning. The property is the same as customized products that are manufactured with modules to allow users to change the product combination to some extent. “Generative Design” is the design method that structures the space and transforms it into data before computing the data using digital design tool. Therefore, “Generative Design of Structured Flexible Space” is the designing method that combines digital design tool to create modulized space.
In the research, a digital design tool was used, along with modularized generative design, to develop an automatic configuration production mechanism. In addition to helping traditional plan designing process, the outcome of the mechanism’s fast plan configuration production improves the efficiency and quality of architectural design. As well as being able to be used in architectural designing process, if relative information technology is also applied, the automatic configuration system may allow the user to participate in the designing process – It is the goal the research seeks to achieve and is the new strategies people in the information era will have for creating residential space.
