The task for this assignment was to utilize Evolutionary Computation in studio projects which in my case was my Peri-node D from Intelligent Cities studio. And later to define a design task to abstract, define a solution space, and deploy Galapagos, Goat*, or Opossum* to search the solution space for the most optimal solutions.

The idea of the project was to optimize radiation on structure in order to use it for energy generation, and find places of maximum and minimum solar radiation to define functions. It was further divided into tasks as to get the maximum radiation.

Task 1
The arrangement of residences are subject to change so as to maximize the radiation on stem.

Task 2
The arrangement of residences further change as to maximize the radiation on stem and the roof of residences.

The Final geometry
After analysis from lady bug and Galapagos, the geometry is finalized as it gives maximum area and number of residences with most optimize solar radiation on stem and roof of structures.
