title A Performance-inspired Building Representation for Computational Design
source Proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Futures [ISBN 0-7923-8536-5] Atlanta, 7-8 June 1999, pp. 117-132
summary A building representation for integrated building performance simulation is described, which addresses several important issues. First, it captures informational requirements for detailed performance analysis and maintains geometric integrity. Second, it provides computational support for efficient spatial queries and convenient building model manipulation. Representational elements include partitioning and refinement rules, containment hierarchies and dimension constraints. These features provide for ease of manipulation, geometric variety and spatial queries and are illustrated with examples. The paper concludes with a discussion of the limitations of the representation.
