title Kinetic Shading System as a means for Optimizing Energy Load - A Parametric Approach to Optimize Daylight Performance for an Office Building in Rome
source Fioravanti, A, Cursi, S, Elahmar, S, Gargaro, S, Loffreda, G, Novembri, G, Trento, A (eds.), ShoCK! - Sharing Computational Knowledge! - Proceedings of the 35th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy, 20-22 September 2017, pp. 231-240
summary Current research, as a part of on-going PhD research, explores the possibilities of dynamic pattern inspired from biomimetic design and presents a structured framework for light to manage strategies. The experiment stresses the improvement of daylight performance through the design and motion of kinetic facades using various integrated software.The impact of kinetic motion of hexagonal pattern was studied by integrating triangle and triangle covering through blooming pyramids on south-facing skin to control the daylight distribution, using a parametric simulation technique. The simulation was carried out for a south oriented façade of an office room in Rome, Italy over three phases. The first optimized results represent the static base case, which were compared to the other two proposed dynamic models in this research. Results demonstrate that dynamic façade achieved a better daylighting performance in comparison to optimized static base case.
