In the early design process called conceptual design and basic design, diverse ideas of design must be obtained from global solution search under the constraint of unclear design conditions. It is difficult to apply the conventional engineering design method from the necessity of the setting of the objective function in the early design process. Therefore, in a previous study, the emergent design system, which is applicable from the early design process, has been proposed. In this study, the degree of freedom in an emergent design solution was extended, to form a method with two types of form elements: existing form elements (matrix element) and fiber form elements. To help construct the system, a differentiation phenomenon, which is seen in the morphogenesis of organisms with diverse forms, was introduced into the form generation algorithm in this system, and the relationship between the input parameters and the newly defined evaluation indexes was analyzed.
