summary Environmentally sound and high-performance buildings are contributing towards a sustainable future. With increased density of contemporary urban space and the urgent desire to promote building performance, a better understanding of wind behaviour will positively influence future design explorations. In the traditional sequential ar- chitectural practice, there is a gap between design and performance simulation. This paper presents an experimental and systematic study of the performance-oriented design tools, strategies and workflows utilized in the concept prototyping of a high-rise building. It describes a new approach to incorporate wind tunnel testing, computational flu- id dynamics simulation as well as parametric software, sensors and open-source electronics platform into an accessible, interactive and low-cost form generation kit, rapidly evaluating the performance of potential design options in the early design stage. As indicated in this research, environmental simulation can be a decision-making tool, in- tegrating the concept of continuity into the design process.
