Workshops in Digital Design Process

The learning process is a never-ending loop and we are constantly researching in technologies and emergent process to apply in our work. The education is essential in our mission and it's embedded in every project we do. Designemergente have been teaching / conducting for many years workshops in... more...

Optimal Painting Distribution for Museum Storage

An Innsbruck based museum, contact us to optimize the distribution of 3,299 paintings into their new storage facilities outside the city. The storage space is composed by an array of double side movable metal grid walls. The museum wants to optimize the painting arrange distribution on the walls to... more...

Iconic Road Bridge construction images

Digital Fabrication The fabrication process implies the use of technologies like CNC, Laser Cut, 3D print, Drones, etc. Although the construction had gain speed and security, the human factor during the assembly process is still necessary. A bottle neck effect emerge, the speed is reduced and the... more...

Iconic Road Bridge design optimization

Design Optimization is a complex task, because involves design criteria and iterative decisions over the same problem until some condition is met. The optimization process involves a series of constraints related to costs, fabrication and aesthetics. The correct use of mathematics (Linear algebra, g... more...

HVAC Energy Consumption Optimization through Genetic Algorithms

One of the main problems in the AEC industry is the HVAC consumption in buildings. The reasons varies why it is necessary reduce the energy consumption. There are clear economic reasons, because a good energy consumption strategy could drive in reduce energy costs and impact in financial cost saving... more...

Evolutionary Optimization in Space Floor Layout Plans

Space layout plan is a time consuming complex task yet for experienced professionals. There are many strategies to face this challenge: Define the corridors first and distribute the spaces around them. Define big surface areas to subdivide in the spaces later. No matter, which approach is taken, all... more...

Generative Urban Design through Genetic Algorithms

An urban centre is an open system involved almost an infinite number of parameters looking the right balance. It's no coincidence cities have the same problems: Traffic jams, Pollution, Crime and Terrorism, Resource management, Etc. Resolve problems in complex systems is not a matter of luck and... more...

Generative Design through Genetic Algorithms

Genetic algorithms performs highly efficient when all the parameters are connected, and is not possible to maximize one value without affect the others. For this experiment a GA is used as a design exploration tool. A binary list 1,0,1,0,0,0,1 represent a series of cubes stacked together to create... more...

Algoritmo Genético para el Problema del Viajante (TSP)

El problema del vendedor ambulante (Travelling Sales Problem) consiste encontrar la ruta más corta que conecte todas las ciudades que el vendedor planea visitar. El problema es muy simple de entender, sin embargo encontrar la solucion correcta es dificil, porque depende de encontrar la combinacion... more...

Façade, IDOM Madrid Headquarters

This work was a collaboration with IDOM to design a facade pattern for their new headquarters in Madrid. The building is located in the Montecarmelo area and overlooks to the radial highway M40. The building seats on a concrete plinth and due to the plot inclination the volume is perceived as a fl... more...
