summary Design is characterized by change. Nowadays, addressing change in design requires enormous efforts, particularly, when the designer is exploring different solutions or when it is necessary to adapt the design to evolving constraints. This paper discusses the potential of Generative Design to help designers handling change, namely in the generation of several alternative design solutions. We propose a programming-based approach that, although requiring an initial investment, dramatically reduces the efforts of design modification. We evaluate the approach in a case study and we show that it is cost-effective in the development of an architectural design.
