The challenge today is building the world engineering optimization. Given the extent of today's projects, data quantity and complexity of many construction projects, beyond d the designer's ability to understand and forecast the project is complete. Genetic algorithms including computational techniques based on evolutionary law that has recently entered the field of architecture, Issues that are complex in function and form, to be used. The purpose of this study is a function of genetic algorithm in the architecture and whether the genetic algorithm is used to create innovative forms or is merely a tool to optimize the Materials and Methods “descriptive analysis" is done. The results show that the use of genetic algorithms in the architecture can be seen as a combination of necessity and desire It as a tool that can be applied to meet the specific Necessity of architect And not merely an experimental design, based on genetic algorithms is to assume, Also as a tool to solve mechanical problems and structural optimization - making create form And powerful tool for layout design, space planning, is used. In recent years, genetic algorithms successfully been used in some construction projects.
