About

GEN-ARCH is a platform for generative participatory design of Open Buildings at the scale of support structures. The project was my Msc. thesis project done at the Genesis lab at Technical University of Delft under the supervision of Dr. ir. Pirouz Nourian, Prof.ir. Thijs (M.F.) Asselbergs, ir. S. Azadi.
