Multiple Plans

Let’s draw some dwellings!

Square Meters

Does a bigger building equals more square meters to sell? Not necessarily. With Finch we use evolutionary solvers and algorithms to find the tipping points.

Column Grid

Optimize the position of a square grid in an organic building using Galapagos.

Garbage Bins

Tired of calculating the size and amount of garbage bins you need for the project?

3D – Organic

3D – Dividing an organic shaped building into desired sized apartments. In this case we choose 120, 100 and 75 sqm equally divided and randomly mixed.

Stairs

Tr1, Tr2 or just any staircase? Fire regulations dictates what kind of stairs in what kind of building. And now Finch do so as well.

Volume

Get a volume placed in the landscape from a polyline.

Footprint

Create a building footprint by drawing a polyline. Instant information regarding size and ratio.

Software

At the moment we’re using Rhinoceros and Grasshopper to develop Finch. There are plans to connect Finch to BIM software in the future. Stay tuned for updates.
