Multi-objective greenhouse design

We were tasked with designing a greenhouse for hobby-level vegetable gardening in Portola Valley, CA that would be as passive as possible.

Geometric variables

Modern greenhouse design involves the alignment of several objectives to ensure plant comfort, not unlike multi-objective high-performance building design for human comfort. How do we navigate the complex design space of the greenhouse with modern computational tools?
