This paper presents a framework for the application of Machine Learning (ML) to Generative Architectural Design (GAD), and illustrates this framework through a description of a series of projects completed at the Smart Geometry conference in May of 2018 (SG 2018) in Toronto.
In work exhibited at the University of Toronto in the context of the 2018 Smart Geometry Conference, three-dimensional architectural massings for single-family homes are generated by a generative adversarial network. This GAN is trained on a small dataset of three-dimensional models of homes falling into seventeen architectural styles, and that are represented as multi-view heightfield images.

This workshop cluster offered at the 2018 Smart Geometry Conference in Toronto was the initial catalyst for the Fresh Eyes project, and was the first incorporation of user-generated image recognition models into the evaluation step of a traditional generative design workflow.
This project uniquely links the familiar parametric environment of Grasshopper with cloud-hosted models trained using Lobe.ai: a user-friendly ML graphic programming environment that runs Tensorflow.
