Parametric Modelling Using the Operative Temperature Map for Façade Design of Office Buildings

Yu Chen Lin & Yaw Shyan Tsay
Controlling incoming solar radiation to a building is one of the main targets of sustainable architecture designers because it decreases HVAC energy consumption and maximizes thermal comfort and usable daylight. The introduction of parametric design has allowed designers to expand their approaches to explore possibilities in façade forms and systems. However, most solar shading designs with complex geometries have been rejected by such building performance simulation software as Energyplus when assessing the calculation of thermal...
