In this research by Ehsan Bazafkan, Ladybug and Honeybee, two building performance simulation plugins for Grasshopper, were used within the context of scenarios that mimic real-world architectural design problems. The application of the plugins was analysed.
This research by Sumaiya Mehjabeen, presents an analysis of daylighting ingress relating to urban street canyon configurations of high-rise residential buildings in the dense urban context of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
This thesis by Orn Erlendsson investigates the design of atria for daylighting in large scale buildings. A three dimensional test building with a central atrium was constructed and various parameters of the atrium altered.
This paper by Mostapha Sadeghipour Roudsari and Anne Waelkens introduces a custom workflow for modeling frit patterns for daylight simulation on buildings, which streamlines quantitative and qualitative daylight analysis.
