Grasshopper Assignment 4-Genetic Optimization

Fiber-Tangled is a project developed in the Digital Matter studio with students Nareh Khaloian, Saurabh Singla, Aditya Mandlik, Akshay Mhamunkar.

The project is an exploration of the extents and the limitations of using Non-woven Natural Fibers and Bio-Binder composite to fabricate sustainable structures using Spraying as a Technique.


The architectural part of the project includes having a large tensile geometry which hosts various functions. We are aiming to optimize this geometry and offer each function pre-determined requirements.
Some of the most important parameters for forming this geometry are:

  • Maximal distance between each function area.
  • Maximal head height for remaining areas.
  • Maximal distance between functions and low points to get maximum area.

Also, it is very important for us to consider solar radiation and create maximum slope for rain water run-off, therefore:

  • Having minimal radiation.
  • Maximal angle between mesh normal and z vector to have maximal slope for water fun-off.
