About this course
This course focuses on using the evolutionary solver Galapagos to optimize four building shapes according to their views. It continues from the Galapagos 101 course, to a more hands-on case study.
By mastering Galapagos and getting an understanding of the power of an evolutionary solver, one can make smarter and better-informed decisions early on in the design process.
