algorithmic modeling for Rhino

An exercise for Simply Rhino's GH Level 2 Workshop: A roof that receives as little yearly solar radiation as possible (GECO with Ecotect) with as much internal shade in summer and as much internal daylight in winter (DIVA+Radiance). Results found in the Galapagos solver.

I was thinking of attempting this in a similar way, but your way makes much more sense.

This helps.

Hi John,

You can only plug one number in Galapagos but this number can be linked to several fitnesses. To do that you need to come up with a function that uses several fitnesses and outputs one number.

Example: If I want to maximize A and Minimize B, my function to maximize would be A-B. This will make A as high as possible and B as small as possible (the result of 100000-0.00001 is bigger that 10-5). This operation can be multiplied for as many fitnesses as you want.

I hope this helps,

Did you manage a way to have multiple fitness conditions at once or did you run each condition separately (solar radiation for shape and then opening size for day-lighting)?
