Abstract

A summary of application of an ILP technique to the study of architectural facades design is presented. We focused on discovering the configuration rules of form elements in the architectural facade elevations evaluated as "historic". We obtained supervisory data based on the record of Sanneizaka Preservation District for Groups of Historic Buildings archived in the Kyoto City Planning Bureau. Architectural objects were converted into simple geometric form elements based on their positional relationships. By employing Progol, an ILP application, we acquired 27 resulting sets of configuration rules.
