source Rethinking Comprehensive Design: Speculative Counterculture, Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2014) / Kyoto 14-16 May 2014, pp. 369–378
summary The study of wind conditions in the urban context has multiple application areas such as for cleaning pollution through ventilation, analysing wind pressures on building façades, and improving pedestrian comfort. In this context, the Pneumosense project is a student’s project focused in the design of a kinetic system to ameliorate negative impact of wind conditions in pedestrian areas in the city of Melbourne. Its development considers several stages including site analysis, analogue wind tunnel testing, digital simulations with Computational Fluid Dynamic software, material explorations, kinetic component design with Arduino, and rapid prototyping.
