summary The evaluation of a low-tech wind sensing platform for urban aerodynamic simulations relevant to pedestrian comfort. In this paper, the wind canyon effect is simulated with two different building morphologies. The platform provides conceptual knowledge of the dynamics in wind relevant for designers, architectural practitioners and students of design. Low-cost hot wire anemometry is utilised for the design of an Experimental Fluid Dynamic (EFD) wind sensing network interface. This paper explores the validity of the sensing platform for a new approach for non-wind engineers to gain a better understanding of the dynamics of wind. The influence of real-time feedback from quantified wind on the understanding of wind phenomena for non-wind engineers is discussed and compared with post analysis data. It was found that real-time quantified feedback from wind intrigues and stimulates the intuitive notion of wind dynamics through discussion, however post analysis remains critical to evaluate building design performance.
