The purpose of this paper is to investigate generative and evolutionary design models by the new idea of co-evolution. Multi-objective optimization is our main concern. A dynamic co-evolution model is presented with detailed description of its application in eco-conscious housing design. Area and solar constraints of housing design problems are considered with maximum architectural area and solar illumination been optimized. We use dynamic niche models based on a fitness-sharing scheme to define energy and fitness functions for the co-evolution system. Early experimental data are presented and analyzed to show the effectiveness of this approach to evolutionary design optimization and its computational implementation of the algorithms.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
