Complex Constraint Authoring

Complex Constraint Authoring

Part of the Digital Environment Project

From direct manipulation to programmatic design, the authoring of spatial structures can be viewed as the specification of a set of constraints. Expressing these constraints to the system, across the spectrum of manual actions to the implementation of automation systems, is an open research problem that we investigate in this project.
