Project Refinery

  • Three Experiments in Generative Design with Project Refinery

    A trio of teams tackling vastly different design problems worked to find solutions with Autodesk’s Project Refinery generative design beta. Here’s what they discovered.  This summer, five teams from three continents traveled to Autodesk’s Toronto Technology Centre for a two-week Generative Design for AEC Intensive Residency. You can read more about the residency here, but […]

  • Getting Started with Project Refinery

    Do you want to learn how to optimize your architectural designs to meet your design goals? Our beta software Project Refinery will allow you to do just that by harnessing the power of Generative Design. Generative design lets you create and evaluate many more design options than you could using manual methods and simultaneously explore […]

  • Explore generative design workflows with the Project Refinery beta

    For the past several years, Autodesk has been exploring the use of generative design for architecture, engineering and construction. In 2017 we opened our new Autodesk Toronto office in the MaRS Discovery innovation hub which was designed using computational workflows and generative learning. This process helped the design team optimize for the welfare and preferences of the 250-plus employees that would work in the space, […]
