In subtropical or tropical region, shading is one of the most important design strategies due to exposure to intense solar radiation. This study by Henry Marroquin, Mate Thitisawat and Emmanouil Vermisso addresses the need for flexible design method identified in today’s architectural practice. Different workflows for coupling the parametric design with simulations of heat flow and radiation are examined.

A workflow consists of tools running on modeling or simulation platform. The paper establishes three workflows, static, cross-platform and dynamic. Each workflow has similar capabilities in terms of access to simulation engines but different flow of information.

Therefore, they can be employed in different design circumstances. The current investigation indicates the need for multi-objective optimization in the future.
