Single- and Multi-objective Optimization in Design

Parametric Support invites architects, engineers and designers to particiapte in training on optimization techniques.

Two day training covers topics of single and multi-objective optimization using generic (based on swarm intelligence and evolutionary algorithms) and dedicated methods.

Interfacing Architecture, Engineering and Optimization

Date: from 22/09/2017 to 24/09/2017

The masterclass explores applications of mathematical optimization to architectural design. Participants will learn about major classes of black-box optimization algorithms – Metaheuristics (including Swarm Intelligence), Direct Search and Surrogate Model-based Optimization – and experiment with algorithms from each category: Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization, DIRECT, and optimization with Radial Basis Functions.

Machine Learning | Experiments

Date: from 06/10/2017 to 08/10/2017

The Experiments workshop will focus on the exploration of solution spaces which is an activity arising every time the designer creates a parametric model. For this task the machine learning tools such as neural networks and autoencoders will be used. The ambition for this event is to conduct a series of short experiments which will discuss the condition of the parametric models and illustrate their properties for a better understanding and development of the design intuition.
