Freeform buildings have become the main trend that reflects complex and diverse nature of the society with the progress on the digital technology. Therefore, the demands of the researches about architectural freeform surfaces have increased rapidly over the past few years. As the fundamental research for the successful construction of the freeform buildings, this study focuses on the definition of terms, and the classification of curved-form, the methods of panelizing, and the optimization of panelizing through an integrated perspective.
