Associative Design Techniques in Sustainable Architecture

Ing. arch. Jiří Pavlíček, Ph.D.

The aim of the research is to project new urban neighbor¬hood model for Chinese urbanization. This model wants to overcome the homogeneity of social income groups and its subsequent forms of ghettoization. The neighborhood is designed as a growth model. The potential of the structure is tested by the organizational potential to allow public program to emerge overtime. Associative design research proposes an oppositional idea of typological thinking, what in biology is called, population thinking, a design approach of pure variations whereby a group of objects or a family of building will be differentiated in various degrees and kinds. Associative design is a parametric design technique using metric parameters to create an infinite number of varia¬tions.
