title Wind-formed Architectural Shapes
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 2, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 377-384
summary The paper investigates the design loop of parametrically creating an architectural shape based on the analysis of the specific wind situation of the design site, continuously testing the design's performance in the wind using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations and subsequently adjusting the formed architectural shape based on the wind simulations' results. An optimal shape for the determined behavior in the wind is sought in this iterative process. The design strategy is being developed as an attempt to create a sustainable and effective alternative design approach for the changing future environment. The complexity of the process, particularly the need of the repetitive wind tunnel adjustment for every new design situation, or the need of external post-processing software for displaying the wind results of every new architectural shape remains a disadvantage in the search for an optimal architectural solution.
