Research interests

Bo Lin's research interest lies in the application of machine learning in architecture and urban design.


Exploration of the Potential Use of Artificial Intelligence in Urban Design

This research aims to propose a deep generative model aided urban form generation framework based on topology to support the process of urban design. The objective of the research are: to survey the user acceptance and vision of academics, professionals, and students in the field of architecture and urban design towards the application of deep generative models in architectural and urban form generation; to develop a deep generative models aided urban form generation framework based on topology; to develop a deep generative models aided street network generation approach based on topology; to develop a deep generative models aided plot and building configuration generation approach based on topology.
