The Optimized Social Distance Lab: A Methodology for Automated Building Layout Redesign for Social Distancing

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



The research considers buildings as a test case for the development and implementation of multi-objective optimized social distance layout redesign.
This research aims to develop and test a unique methodology using software Wallacei and the NSGA-II algorithm to automate the redesign of an interior layout to
automatically provide compliant social distancing using fitness functions of social
distance, net useable space and total number of users. The process is evaluated
in a live lab scenario, with results demonstrating that the methodology provides
an agile, accurate, efficient and visually clear outcome for automating a
compliant layout for social distancing.
