3.1 Case Study

The following sections describe the case study sub-project which will be developed and offered as a proof of
concept for the design process generally outlined in section 3.0. The case study project will consist of a real world
architecture project with programmatic requirements for an actual site and clear objectives. The case study will
utilize the design process including the algorithmic design aspect and the human-centric design aspect as well as a
sequential review by jury which will evaluate the design relative to the objectives. This research follows loosely
Hall’s 3D morphology of systems design process diagram (Fig. 3.1.1) (Hall, 1969). In this diagram the different
steps are intended to occur within each stage of a larger process and in this sense are iterative. Hall’s morphology
includes general steps for a design process which is adopted for this research and refer to in the following sections.
