Abstract

This paper describes a system for generating customized mass housing. The aim is to provide dwellings at an affordable cost with recourse to mass production and sstyem yet guarantee that they are tailored to their users. It combines two systems, a rule-based design and a prefabricated building system. The integration of both systems is achieved through the development of a computer tool to assist designers in the various stages of the housing design process. This tool produces three kinds of outputs: three dimensional models, construction drawings, and a list of construction elements, including their cost and information for manufacturing.
