Architecture studio Wallgren Arkitekter and Swedish construction company BOX Bygg recently joined forces to launch a new parametric design tool dubbed Finch. The generative design tool is able to conceptualize various floor plans based on the data given and was created to inspired architects to understand constraints in the early stages of designing. The plug-in visual programming tool boasts both 2D and 3D design concepts using the inputted data including the size of the building as well as local planning regulations. The brands hope the tool reduces repetitive tasks while increasing productivity.
Finch is currently still under development with plans to go to market during 2020. The SaaS-platform will be available through services like Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D, and Autodesk's Revit.

The New Finch System Can Generate Adaptive Floor-Plans
1. Generative Design - The Finch system is a generative design tool that can create various floor plans based on given data, inspiring architects to understand early constraints.
2. Parametric Design - Finch is a parametric design tool that can both visualize in 2D and 3D using inputted data such as building size and local planning regulations.
3. Productivity Tools - Wallgren Arkitekter and BOX Bygg aim to increase productivity while reducing repetitive design tasks with the launch of Finch, a plug-in visual programming tool.
1. Architecture - The Finch system by Wallgren Arkitekter and BOX Bygg could transform the architecture industry by streamlining the design process and providing more accurate data-driven floor plans.
2. Construction - By reducing repetitive design tasks and increasing productivity, Finch could potentially disrupt the construction industry by saving time and resources during the building process.
3. Software - The launch of Finch as a SaaS-platform through services like Rhinoceros 3D, Grasshopper 3D, and Autodesk's Revit could significantly transform the software industry by introducing new and innovative visual programming tools.
