Performance Simulation and Validation of Climate Adaptive Dynamic Facades in Campus Buildings
The ‘praxis’ of architecture is in a constant change of evolution. The use of building performance simulation tools is now an integral part of architectural practice and is used widely for presentation, modeling, manufacturing, presenting progressive ideas and simulation. Building Performance Simulation tools like TRNSYS, Honeybee and Open studio generates a real time analysis of the built environment with hourly data that can be extremely useful in design analysis and help the architect or environmental engineer make better design decisions early in the design stages. This paper aims at the application of a climate adaptive building envelope on a base model and validates and analyzes it through thermal simulation and prototype experimentation. The key objectives of these simulations and experimentations are to prove the thermal adaptability of Bioinspired climate adaptive building envelopes using various parametric simulation tools like Grasshopper & TRNSYS.
