Abstract

A population of all possible eight-face polyominoes is generated to represent low-cost house designs. A cost formula is then derived and applied to this population. The effects of cost on the built form of houses are enumerated, and the results suggest one way of exploring the relationship between the process of housing procurement and the architecture of house form itself.
