How Architects Use Computational Design To Get You The Best Views

Designing and constructing a building is not an easy task; guaranteeing everyone is happy with their view from the thing is almost impossible. But these days architects are using intelligent computational design to make sure as many people as possible get an amazing view from their desk.

This video shows how it’s possible to use a little clever coding to ensure that a high-rise offers its inhabitants both wonderful views of the city and the surroundings beyond. It’s pretty clever stuff, allowing architects to fine-tune the design and orientation of a building to wring every last bit of promise out of a given plot. [NBBJThanks Daniel!]
