Looking for examples of building position optimization

Hi, I am looking for example approaches at building position optimization
I am trying to find a way to optimizie multiple building position to some fitness value.
Currently I am just feeding their X and Y position from their origin to the genetic algorithm but I feel this is not a smart solution:

Can someone recommend me some more interesting approaches?

Hi,@ae Galapagos is not a good choice for optimization. I perfer to use octupus which is more friendly for optimization workflow and data visulization.

Hey I am actually using octopus! this is just an example image.
I am though more looking for approach ideas - for example how to describe position, is X/Y value really a good metric? maybe a vector with direction or something else?

Also with more buildings changing anything becomes very tedious, fx. change slider ranges for 20 buildings etc.
