Traditionally, the parametric design and manufacturing industry has a deep interaction with each other. As we know, the pavilion is the practice filed to represent the relationship between the manufacturing and design industry (2015:A1-A18). In recent years, this symbiotic relationship simultaneously raises the sustainable issue of overly waste the material. As a consequence, we attempt to redefine the relationship between them, and this paper includes "Form-Finding Algorithm," "Neural Style Transfer," and "Excel Solver" as a collaborative computation method to explore the relationships among the design, the manufacturing, and the sustainability.
