Building Performance Simulation

Building Performance

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.

Daylighting in Density

Daylighting in Density

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.

Daylight Optimization Parametric Atrium Design

Daylight Optimization

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.

A New Approach to Modeling Frit Patterns for Daylight Simulation

Modeling Frit Patterns

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.
