title Notes on the development of a parametric design process for a brisesoleil system
source FUTURE TRADITIONS [1st eCAADe Regional International Workshop Proceedings / ISBN 978-989-8527-03-5], University of Porto, Faculty of Architecture (Portugal), 4-5 April 2013, pp. 143-154
summary The process of adopting digital simulation and design tools into an existing procedural framework is tedious in that it requires a significant investment by the users. Software manufactures aim to create interfaces that can easily be understood and put into practice. That being said, other factors, such as the lack of climatic data, deter the quick absorption into professional practice. In a country such as Colombia, which is in a zone near the equator and is characterized by drastic differences in topography, the preprogrammed climatic data is insufficient. Even when figures are provided or manually configured, parallel simulations between various software packages reveal significant discrepancies in terms of estimated performance. Wary of this, yet optimistic of the potential of parametric modeling, the authors have developed and implemented a methodological procedure which first articulates the design problem, then develops the parametric model and lastly applies this model. Upon reviewing more than a hundred variations, one configuration was selected as the highest performer. A prototype has been built and is currently being monitored by other researchers with the aim of rectifying the divergence in computed data by various software packages with real numbers. This paper will explain how the parametric design process was developed and the methodology employed in search of an efficient and effective brise soleil system.
