For my design idea for my final project I would like to construct a parametric 3D model, because this will allow me test the light quality in the interior space in relation to the angle of light well inside the building.
The Galapagos function allows me determine the same floor plan area in accordance with the different angles and sizes of the light well. This will make it possible to make quick adjustments in 3D models for further light simulation analyses.
For my final project, I am interested in using our other Arch517 Kinetic interactive building skin model (Prf. Fox_Team menbers: FengCheng, Myoboon, Wonhee) to consider maximize the natural light to the interior space and minimize the solar gain during the summer months. And vice verse, maximize solar gain to the interior space and minimize the glazing effect at the human eye level during the winter.
I hope I am able to use the optimization technique by combining Grasshopper with Ecotect software.
The following is the grasshopper interactive model I have made along with the rendering and image of physical model:
