Emelie’s interest in creating computer-aided designs based on data and parameters was developed during the courses CAD and VR, Virtual Design and Development Project – Construction.
In her ongoing master thesis, she applies generative design technology to the design process of creating a vertical extension of an existing building. Algorithms makes it possible to take advantage of computers calculation capacity and create multiple designs. The work method also makes it possible for users to evaluate data and make analysis within the design in an early stage of the design process. The master thesis purpose is to examine how generative design can support the process of designing a vertical extension of an existing building with low climate impact.
The study is conducted within research project Timber on Top that aim to collect and spread knowledge about sustainable vertical additions and timber constructions. The expected benefit with including generative design in an early phase of the design process is raised awareness within design choices and material selection to achieve a sustainable result. Emelie is writing her master thesis in collaboration with Tyréns.
