Designing a Building envelope using parametric and algorithmic processes

SIGRADI 2015 [Proceedings of the 19th Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics  vol. 2  ISBN: 9788580391336] Florianópolis, SC, Brasil 2327 November 2015, pp. 797801. 
summary 
This article presents a case study on a vertical building envelope design considering Recife ?s climatic conditions. It consists of the
utilization of parametric and algorithmic processes to distribute sun shading devices. The study uses computational tools such as
Grasshopper and the DIVA for Grasshopper. The latter is a thermal energy simulation tool that uses the Energy Plus 7.0 and Daysim
for calculations. The model uses incident solar radiation simulation on the envelope as basis for distribution of shading devices. The
result is a parametric model that automatically responds to urban and climatic characteristics, through simulations integrated to the
3D model.
