Three-Dimensional Shape Generation of Low-Energy Architectural Solutions using Pareto Genetic Algorithms

  title={Three-Dimensional Shape Generation of Low-Energy Architectural Solutions using Pareto Genetic Algorithms},
  author={Luisa G. Caldas},
This paper extends on a previous work on the application of a Generative Design System [GDS] to the evolution, in a computational environment, of three-dimensional architectural solutions that are energy-effi cient and adapted to the climatic environment where they are located. The GDS combines a well-known building energy simulation software [DOE2.1E] with search procedures based on Genetic Algorithms and on Pareto optimization techniques, successfully allowing to tackle complex multi… CONTINUE READING
