Parametric wind design

prof. Dr. Henri Hubertus Achten

The changes in weather and slow, but noticeable changes in climate ask for reconsidering the approach to buildings’ design. These environmental parameters and their fluctuation influence the lifespan of buildings. If the effects of environmental factors of the locality, weather conditions, and the local microclimate, are taken into account early in the conceptual stage of design, this could improve the performance of the building in the changing ambient conditions. Parametric designing enables to search for the best suitable architectural shape based on the specific weather data. The paper intends to investigate how this design approach, together with Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations, can be used to create a wind-induced architecture.
