Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1

Date: 26.06.2020

Task 1

Software used: Rhinoceros 6, Grasshopper

Tools Used: Construct Domain, Random, Panel, Loft, Extrude, Vector XYZ, Move, Explode, List item, ScaleNU.

The session was to build to develop an understanding of implementation of generative algorithm and design optimization through evolutionary algorithm. An architecture design brief was developed with tutor and students’ input. The brief was to design for rooms (Living room, Kitchen, Bedroom1, Bedroom2) with a central courtyard. To develop this, different fitness criteria were assigned to generate the design.

Diagram showing list of various fitness criteria and conceptualization of the quality of space to be generated.

Final requirement of the kind of space required.

Four rectangles generated at the four vertex points of a central rectangle in grasshopper.

Four rectangles being given thickness and are extruded o generate rooms.

Diagram shows scaling factor of the rooms.

Solid geometries being generated at intersection to create openings in the rooms.
