Information

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.

Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Diagram showing list of various fitness criteria and conceptualization of the quality of space to be generated.
Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Final requirement of the kind of space required.
Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Four rectangles generated at the four vertex points of a central rectangle in grasshopper.
Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Four rectangles being given thickness and are extruded o generate rooms.
Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Diagram shows scaling factor of the rooms.
Day 2 | Introduction to Genetic algorithm: Task 1
Solid geometries being generated at intersection to create openings in the rooms.
