Shajay Bhooshan, lead researcher at Zaha Hadid Architects, used Maya and Algor Simulation software to create operative pathways from physically based simulation designs to structurally sound architectural models.

Inspired by analog architectural design methods that were established in the 19th century by architects like Antoni Gaudi, Bhooshan created a digital method to unite playful architectural form-finding with qualitative structural analysis in the early stages of the design process.

Structural analysis
Bhooshan created a plug-in for Maya to visualize stresses in real time, enabling him to integrate structural feedback into the form-finding process with minimal disruption to the creative experience.
