Description/Abstract

"My objective is to explore the potential of generative design processes driven by user-derived parameters established through computational protocols, algorithms, and simulations resulting in a process embodying ecologies of feedback and performances. Inherent in the designed process is the establishment of feedback, through each cycle of simulation, evaluation, and modification of the geometry.

This thesis project demonstrates a version of these processes specifically examining the performance driven building typology of the massive server farm. Specifically, its implicit correlations with fluid dynamic simulation and its biases toward an optimization of heat dissipation and plan layout. This project is situated between a performative and designed solution with direct implication on form generation and design methodology."
