Abstract

In this paper, we propose a pipeline of urban space synthesis which leverages Wave Function Collapse (WFC) and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) to train the computer how to design urban space. Firstly, we establish an urban design database. Then, the urban road networks, urban block spatial forms and urban building function layouts are generated by WFC and CNNs and evaluated by designer afterwards. Finally, the 3D models are generated. We demonstrate the feasibility of our pipeline through the case study of the North Extension of Central Green Axis in Wenzhou. This pipeline improves the efficiency of urban design and provides new ways of thinking for architecture and urban design.
