In this course, you are introduced to Evolutionary Algorithms and their application for your design or planning project. We use various components in Grasshopper (Galapagos, Octopus, Opossum, Wallacei) that provide algorithms for single and multi-criteria optimization.

Learning objectives

You learn in detail how to combine various spatial analysis methods with innovative generative methods and evolutionary algorithms for the optimization of specific planning or design aspects.

The knowledge provided through online seminars will be deepened in consultations and documented in several exercises.


A requirement for choosing this seminar is the completion of the course Introduction to Scripting with C# or good programming skills. In this seminar, you enhance your programming skills and their creative application for design tasks.
