Abstract: The design of sustainable district is a recent subject which is motivated mainly by environmental, energy and economy aspects. The DIMOSIM (DIstrict MOdeller and SIMulator) platform allows to investigate this research field by modelling and simulating an entire district. A complete procedure, based on direct search and the NSGA-II genetic algorithm, was developed to solve this multi-objective optimisation problem. The aim of this study is to prove that it is perfectly suitable for this type of complex problem. The solutions obtained show satisfactory results compared to the real Pareto solutions which confirms the choices made to elaborate this optimisation procedure.
