Evolution of/in artificial systems has been discussed in many fields such as computer science, architecture, natural and social sciences over the last fifty years. Evolutionary computation which takes its roots in computation and biology has a potential to enrich ways of thinking in architecture. This paper focuses mainly on the methodology of how evolutionary computation theories might be embedded in architectural education within the theoretical course in graduate level.
