An aerial perspective on Generative Design

I have often been asked to share the mindmap that i and Patrik use in our presentations about Generative Design. Here’s how it basically can be understood: Every single project can be splitted into three components: An input, a process and an output. The input can be any data-source, the process is an algorithm that processes the data and the output is the result of the process, a new aggregate state of the input. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or ideas about improvements.
