This PhD research adopts ‘Discrete’ computational design and automated assembly methodologies from architectural academia and applies them to automotive design.

It proposes a conceptual construction system - one that builds infinitely adaptable vehicle interior spaces - so delivering the increased utilisation rates Connected, Autonomous, Shared and Electric (CASE) mobility demands. This research also speculates on the role of the designer in the computational age, and how automation could be a progressive tool to help democratise decision making.
