Opossum Architectural Design Optimization Tool
Designer: Prof Thomas Schroepfer, Giacomo Nannicini, Thomas Wortmann
Client: Singapore University of Technology and Design
Performative architecture – needed to design more resource and energy-efficient buildings – involves sophisticated and time-consuming structural and environmental simulations. Opossum employs state-of-the-art optimisation algorithms that require a small number of simulations. It is especially effective for time-intensive, simulation-based problems and is a groundbreaking optimisation tool that puts presently impractical applications within reach.
