Computational Design for BIM is an intelligent model-based process that provides a framework for negotiating and influencing the interrelation of internal and external building parameters.
In relation to design, computation involves the processing of information and interactions between elements which constitute an environment. Computational Design provides a framework for negotiating and influencing the interrelation of both internal and external properties, with the capacity to generate complex order, form, and structure. By combining the principles of computational design with Building Information Modeling, a fundamentally new method of building design is made possible.
