The second numerical model linked to a geometrical model

The need then arose to have a model that could allocate functions per room and per floor in the existing building, because the numerical output alone did not provide sufficient information to the Stedelijk Museum. Therefore, a more detailed LP model was linked to a geometrical model.

The numerical model represented all rooms within each floor of the Stedelijk Museum. In this model the Stedelijk Museum could express per room its fitness for use for every function using Boolean values. For instance, not all rooms where fit to be used for exhibitions.

The geometrical model was a drawing in Autocad that also represented all rooms within each floor of the Stedelijk Museum (Fig. 17.3). The extension was represented as a rectangle per floor, because the shape did not matter in this stage of the process.

With the budgetary and spatial restrictions the numerical model could be optimised. The results where handed back to the geometrical model which colour-coded the different rooms according to their function (Fig. 17.4). In other words: the numerical results became graphical. The resulting drawings were presented to the Stedelijk Museum to see whether a proposed layout of functions was acceptable. This iterative process ended when the Stedelijk Museum was satisfied with the proposed layout.
