Abstract

The architecture design today has new expressive features due to the parametric and computational modelling software, which greatly amplify the potential of language. This condition makes it possible to generate customised elements and systems through a process of cyber-physical interaction between design and architectural production. As well as the geometric constraints, dictated by manufacturing and assembly processes of materials, they can be incorporated in the generative design codes. The article examines the possibility to also include the main conditions that enable the selective disassembly of the elements and their reuse at the end of life, avoiding the generation of parts that are not remanufacturable or reusable.
