The Chair for Computing in Architecture at ICD is excited to announce the release of Opossum 3, including Performance Explorer, an interactive and intuitive visual tool for performance-informed design space exploration. Performance Explorer uses machine learning and data visualization to visualize a single-objective optimization problem's fitness landscape with real-time performance feedback through surrogate models. Performance Explorer interacts with Grasshopper to allow users to explore the corresponding designs. We hope that Performance Explorer will assist designers in their interpretation of architectural design optimization results and their understanding of the correlation between design decisions and performance criteria - for the design of a better tomorrow!
