summary The crisis of architecture is a crisis of form, therefore new approaches and definitions are necessary. The children´s game of Hide-and-Seek seems extremely relevant to learn the complex interplay of social interaction and space. What if its hiding places were to be designed by an architect? Is there a method to relate the rules of the game to the number, design and layout of its obstacles in such a way as to create a successful game?A possibility to tackle this problem is the use of metaheuristic solvers. But even for the simple game of Hide-and-Seek, their use is confined to cases with a very limited set of obstacles and players, since the time needed to calculate the fitness function increases rapidly. To overcome this we suggest the use of statistical methods to develop a heuristic fitness function based on properties which can be directly computed from the values of the genotype. The resulting function makes is possible to solve the given problem using a metaheuristic solver not only for the simple cases with 3 or 4, but also for those with n obstacles.
