This research investigates the evolutionary design of building façades, optimally shaped for a given climate. This study applies evolutionary methods to optimally design sun-shades (covering windows on building façades). Ideally, sun-shades will maximally block direct sunlight but minimize window coverage, thus allowing unobstructed views out of the window and maximizing ambient natural lighting inside.
