This experiment does an evolutionary optimazition for environmental and geomtric factors. The optimized form is a bench with a canopy over it. The idea is that the sitting area (red-orange-blue) has a low amount of sun-hours. The top of the roof on the other hand (black-white), is covered with solar panels and thus should have a high amount of sun-hours.

Fitness criterion: The difference in sun-hours between bench and roof should be as big as possible (so roof has many and bench fewer sun-hours).

Definition of genome: 6 Points of curve that is extruded to be the surface. These 6 points can move in z and y direction.

Variation range of genome: The 6 Points can move as far as the resulting shape makes sense as a bench with a canopy.
