Scout is a tool that allows designers, clients, or the general public to explore the thousands of design schemes that are generated by our computational design process.
Scout has 2 settings. The first allows you to go through each design iteration one by one by manipulating a set a sliders that control the design decisions, or "inputs" in the parlance of our model. Each design has both an image associated with it, as well as a series of performance metrics, or "outputs".
The second setting allows you to compare all the design schemes to eachother at the same time. Every design iteration is plotted on a single line chart. This chart can then be sorted and filtered based on the "inputs" and "outputs" so you only see the iterations that you want to see.
Once you found a design scheme that you have and opinion about, you can click either "like" or "dislike" to register your feelings to the central database.
