Environmental Performance

Simulation and Analysis have never been more accessible and integrated into an iterative contemporary workflow. This focused intensive will cover the basics of solar performance simulation and analysis moving from simplified concepts and applications to more involved analysis with mid-story prototypical development. Increase your knowledge and skills covering pre-design site and massing studies through form and facade development pertaining to solar performance.Visualization and output of solar performance will take place with both parametric tools and real-time rendering packages exploring the potentials of developed diagrams, statistics, interior, and exterior images, renders, and animation output potentials with simple workflows.No prior knowledge necessary. Only an interest or awareness of environmental analysis or environmental studies.Logistics :This digital intensive will utilize Zoom and Miro to collaboratively engage with subject matter.Requirements :Hardware : Laptop or Desktop computerSoftware : (Optional to have. Software access will be provided)Rhino 6 or 7 (64bit) Grasshopper plugin for rhino (free) Ladybug tools (free plugin for grasshopper) Enscape (free trial, free for students)
