In This workshop we will focus on how to integrate Daylighting & thermal Analysis into parametric design workflow. Through this workshop we will explore new façade design opportunities, where the resulting proposal could achieve better performance in comparison with the convention techniques of passive façades, stepping away from linear (trial & error process) to new optimization techniques.
The objective of this workshop is to provide participants with an understanding of how to use parametric modeling tool along with validated environmental analysis tool (Grasshopper and Diva) together to achieve the optimum sustainable design, and publish their results in scientific journals and conferences.
Teach the participants how to:-
+Model a parametric room which has multiple parameters which can be optimized.
+Create a range of responsive façade techniques to adopt each design objective.
+Conduct daylight and thermal simulation using DIVA which communicates with Radiance & EnergyPlus.
+Correctly setup the simulation setting in order to perform a validated simulation results which can be published in scientific journals.
+Organize and analyze the simulation results based on each optimization method that were used.
+Identify the best possible set of solutions based on the balance between thermal and daylighting performance.
+Explore different techniques to enhance the daylighting performance.
+Certificate from IBPSA-Egypt after exam in the last session.
