New building technologies and materials coupled with a modular construction system offer consumers an unprecedented chance to customize their living spaces. At the center of this customization process is a computational tool that guides consumers through the process of designing a home or apartment. Algorithms for architectural computational critics that are trained by a designer through examples and that can then critique designs is proposed as part of the design tool. A prototype system encompassing two apartment design scenarios is built and tested. The prototype demonstrates the ability to learn architectural concepts through training.
