MASS REGIMES: Geometrically Actuated Thermal Flows
ACADIA 14: Design Agency [Proceedings of the 34th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 9781926724478]Los Angeles 23-25 October, 2014), pp. 237-246
Mass Regimes project investigates the effect of complex geometry on the process of passive heat distribution in thermal mass systems, with the intention of instrumentalizing design principles that effectively engage a greater thermal gradient between buildings and their environment. The focus is on a deeper understanding of how specific morphological manipulation of mass distribution to surface area affects the rate of thermal transfer.
