title Opossum - Introducing and Evaluating a Model-based Optimization Tool for Grasshopper
source P. Janssen, P. Loh, A. Raonic, M. A. Schnabel (eds.), Protocols, Flows, and Glitches - Proceedings of the 22nd CAADRIA Conference, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China, 5-8 April 2017, pp. 283-292
summary This paper presents Opossum, a new optimization plug-in for Grasshopper, a visual data-flow modelling software popular among architects. Opossum is the first publicly available, model-based optimization tool aimed at architectural design optimization and especially applicable to problems that involve time-intensive simulations of for example day-lighting and building energy. The paper details Opossum's design and implementation and compares its performance to four single-objective and one multi-objective solver. The test problem is time-intensive and simulation-based: optimizing a screened fašade for daylight and glare. Opossum outperforms the other single-objective solvers and finds the most accurate approximation of the Pareto front.
