title Intelligent Territory - A responsive cooling tower and shading system for arid environments
source M. Haeusler, M. A. Schnabel, T. Fukuda (eds.), Intelligent & Informed - Proceedings of the 24th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand, 15-18 April 2019, pp. 571-580
summary Climatic change coupled with desertification processes impacting cities located around the Mediterranean, has raised serious questions for the capability of the affected cities to adapt to the rapidly changing environmental conditions. This research aims to design small-scale tower structures and shading devices in Nicosia, Cyprus through employing environmental analyses within a generative design process to create an intelligent, adaptive system. Guided by Bernoulli's principles, geometrical design parameters acquired from fluid simulations, alongside solar analyses of the existing city fabric, were used to generate an evolutionary algorithm for design. The research develops a methodology to facilitate environmental flows in urban architectural systems, generating cooling processes in arid environments that facilitate the adaptation of cities to changes in climatic and environmental conditions.
