What Generative Design Can Be Used For?
Generative design helps with common design problems that don't have a single, clear solution. As designers, we often encounter problems like this that have more than one possible solution, complex inter-dependencies, and/or contradictory requirements.
For example, we might have a good idea of what a building needs to be properly designed, but no straightforward recipe to achieve it. This is often defined as a wicked problem, and this is the type of problem that generative design is used for.
