AS320057 - Multidomain, Multiobjective Optimization Using Topologic, Dynamo, and Project Refinery

Session Description

One of the challenges facing the industry is that optimization is usually offered only within a domain-specific software engine. One solution is to use general-purpose design environments such as Dynamo, coupled with optimization engines such as Project Refinery to enable multidomain, multiobjective optimization. This class will introduce Topologic, a new and free software kit ( Topologic offers the ability to think spatially, topologically, and conceptually about a design project. Topologic is also tightly coupled with EnergyPlus for energy analysis within Dynamo and with Project Refinery. Thus, Topologic offers the possibility of multidomain, multiobjective optimization where the involved domains go beyond traditional building performance. This class will introduce the related concepts, illustrate the powerful features of the software through example workflows, and offer you hands-on experience to experiment with customized workflows.
