title Developing a Workflow for Daylight Simulation
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 363-372
summary Daylight simulations are occasionally used as active tools in regards to local governing regulations, which are necessary for providing documentation. Simulation tools have been avoided in the past due to their barriers. Daylight simulation tools are used within documentation design stages as ‘passive tools’, however they do not have a direct impact on the architecture design decisions, as passive tools are used by engineers usually to derive material and glass speci- fications. Recent developments within an online community have pro- vided designers with access to daylight simulation tools within a de- sign platform accessible data can be modified and represented with local governing codes to provide designers with relevant information. The paper aimed to develop an active daylight simulation tool within a design platform. Data is filtered with the Green Star benchmarks to export visual information as well as a voxel matrix instead of 2D lu- minance maps. This paper outlines a workflow of the simulation tool used to evaluate daylight performance of a selected building as a case study in real time. The paper also details potential problems and justi- fied suggestions derived from the analysis for the building to reach the requirements within the Green Star Multi Unit Residential.
