Title: RIGHT-SIZING FUNCTION-SPECIFIC BLOCKS WITH AN ARCHITECTURAL PARTI
Abstract:
A computer-implemented method for right-sizing function-specific blocks in a healthcare building with a given architectural parti to support a specific space program is disclosed. In an embodiment, the method involves describing the relative locations of function-specific blocks using a coordinate system, wherein the function-specific blocks are placed in particular locations within the building relative to a circulation pattern, describing constraints related to the areas of the function-specific blocks, and adjusting the areas and/or aspect ratios of the function-specific blocks to find a solution that maintains the relative locations of the function-specific blocks while meeting the area constraints.
