Climate, Massing, and Facade Analysis

By using Rhino-Grasshopper-Ladybug tools, a building model was created to define performance metrics such as daily temperature fluctuation, sun paths, and a psychometric chart with comfort polygons. This was followed by the use of Galapagos in order to determine the optimum height of the building based on sun radiation. Finally, Ladybug was utilized to analyze the overall radiation on the building in order to inform a parametric facade solution.
