Undergraduate research project by Hanna Wallach, supervised by Alan Blackwell in collaboration with Robert Aish and staff of architectural practice Foster and partners.

This project explored computer tools for constraint-based design, and created a novel graphical overlay of design constraints. On the basis of this project, Hanna was nominated for, and won, the UK national prize for Computer Science student of the year.
