Kinetic Tank Forest – Algae Mesh

The Grasshopper Galapagos Evolutionary Solver follows the principles of genetic heredity combining and iterating different solutions so as to maximise or minimise a desired value. Utilising Galapagos an evolutionary algorithm was developed to optimise the building design for the Self Sufficient Buildings Studio. The code was elaborated to find the optimal configuration of tanks within the building so as to obtain a perimetral mesh with the maximum area of high solar radiation where algae panels will be distributed for biomass production.
