Generative Forms of Historical Architectural Arts – the Example of Caisson in Historical Temple

Yinghsiu Huang
Abstract—The Caisson structure with several artworks and sculptures is the most valuable and important art for preservation by using digital technologies. On the other hand, the main function of Caisson structure is supporting the weight of round shape roof, releasing the pressure from structures, and extending the life of the traditional temple buildings. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to construct the “Caisson” system of Taiwan traditional temple structure by generative algorism. Moreover, by modifying some parameters, different style of Caisson will be generated, as well. Consequently, this paper is not only proposing the generative forms of Caisson system, but also simulating the art forms on the system through the generative algorisms.

Index Terms—Generative design, caisson structure, historical temple, parametric design.
