The way people navigate through spaces has been studied for quite a while. Different models have been described and validated through empirical studies.This paper explores the use of such models in an ‘inverse design’ (Faucher and Nivet, 2000) process, applying available metaheuristic-solvers. More detailed, it showcases the description of an ambiguous fitness function as base to invent a new circulation pattern. As such technics are time consuming compared to the use of readily available patterns, an attempt is made to analyse and understand the invented circulation patterns, in order to come up with a procedural algorithm that would generate circulation pattern with the same characteristics.
