This project is a multi-criteria optimization process of a façade in which the rewards of the ample but limited amount of solar irradiance is optimized. This research and project was done under employment of the National University of Singapore as part of the Tropical Technologies Laboratory. The main goal of the project is to develop a functional residential façade for Singapore in which both agriculture and electricity production is realistically optimized.
Our participation has been both design and simulation oriented. We’ve personally developed the Grasshopper set-up to test about 20.000 design variants that we have developed. The ladybug and honeybee plug-in was used to employ validated simulation software (Radiance, Daysim and Energyplus).
The optimized designs per orientation have been completed and are now being tested. For more information on this project please find our open access publication here. For more information about our capacity to perform expert analysis and simulation as part of your project, feel free to contact us!
