Report highlights impact of generative design on climate change.

A collective of more than 20 generative design technology leaders including Transcend, Augmenta, TestFit, and Autodesk, are featured in the release of the first 2024 Annual Report: The State of Generative Design for Critical Infrastructure.

The report looks at the current state of generative design adoption in infrastructure industries, including housing, transportation, water, energy, and more.

“As our past performance has clearly shown, the traditional ways of planning and designing critical infrastructure are simply not going to succeed in the new era of climate change, rapidly evolving regulation, land constraints, and crumbling infrastructure. There’s too much work to be done and not enough talent to do it. It requires technology like generative design to fill the gap so we can effectively and affordably construct foundational critical infrastructure systems,” says Ari Raivetz, CEO and co-founder, Transcend. “Generative design software has played, and will continue to play, a pivotal role in effectively addressing the most complex infrastructure challenges, ultimately reshaping entire urban landscapes and creating resilient cities of the future.”

The 2024 Annual Report explores:

  • A market analysis on the factors prompting the industry to reconsider why design done the traditional way will no longer work, and practical applications of generative design in designing, constructing, and operating the built world.
  • An array of generative design companies solving challenges in specific industry verticals like water, power, transportation, housing.
  • Advantages of proactively measuring the total number of projects that use generative design in the planning phase as a leading indicator of project success.
  • A call to action for Utility and AEC companies to adopt these technologies, recommending KPIs by which they can measure the success of using generative design within their organizations.

“It’s imperative that the industry players designing, constructing, and managing our built environment understand the driving factors behind why they must evolve with these emerging technologies,” says Theo Agelopoulos, vice president of AEC Design Strategy, Autodesk. “We’re in an age where software can help design a sustainable, resilient future, and companies adopting generative design to their workflows are proof of its substantial impact on efficiency and output.”
