Figure 1 . GEM-NI enables users to work with alternative generative designs simultaneously. Specifically, GEM-NI provides tools to manage the set of alternatives affected by edit operations, post-hoc merging of (parts of) alternatives, and several ways to create new alternatives, such as resurrection of past states with full undo lineage duplication or selection from an enhanced design gallery implementation. The leftmost alternative is the original design and is active, the center one is
more &raquo; ... e, and the rightmost one is idle. ABSTRACT We present GEM-NI -a graph-based generative-design tool that supports parallel exploration of alternative designs. Producing alternatives is a key feature of creative work, yet it is not strongly supported in most extant tools. GEM-NI enables various forms of exploration with alternatives such as parallel editing, recalling history, branching, merging, comparing, and Cartesian products of and for alternatives. Further, GEM-NI provides a modal graphical user interface and a design gallery, which both allow designers to control and manage their design exploration. We conducted an exploratory user study followed by in-depth one-on-one interviews with moderately and highly skills participants and obtained positive feedback for the system features, showing that GEM-NI supports creative design work well.
