GenerativeComponents (GC) enables architects and engineers to pursue designs and achieve results that were virtually unthinkable before. Empowered by computational methods, the designers can direct their creativity to deliver inspired, sustainable, better-performing buildings that are freer in form and use innovative materials and assemblies. GenerativeComponents facilitates this by allowing the quick exploration of a broad range of “what-if” alternatives for design components ranging from conventional building elements such as curtain walls, paneling, and stairs to overall building configurations and form for even the most complex buildings.
Among the leading architects and engineers around the world already taking advantage of this unique generative design software are AKT II (Adams Kara Taylor), Arup, Atkins, Buro Happold, Foster + Partners, Grimshaw Architects, Henning Larsen Architects, HOK, Lem3a, Morphosis, PLP/Architecture, Populous, Robin Partington Architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, Snøhetta, Stantec, UNStudio, and Zaha Hadid Architects. GenerativeComponents is available as a no-charge download at www.bentley.com/gc.
