Climate Design Tools

Modul 29 - Sondergebiete des Nachhaltigen Bauens

Klasse für Gebäudetechnologie und klimagerechtes Entwerfen

Seminar CDT - Veranstaltungsposter

This seminar introduces students to industry-leading digital design workflows, optimizing various quantitative aspects of architectural design. It focuses on climate-responsive form optimization at both building and urban scales.
The seminar begins with an introduction to climate-responsive design, showcasing real project examples. It places a stronger emphasis on the theoretical aspects of daylighting and radiation studies. Participants will receive basic training in Rhino 3D for preparing daylight and radiation models. This will be followed by an introductory session to Grasshopper, a graphical algorithm editor for Rhino that facilitates visual programming and parametrization. As the seminar progresses, participants will develop a gradual understanding of digital workflows and expand on concepts such as climate analysis, sun-path, shading masks, solar irradiation, and daylighting, leading to an advanced understanding of integrated climate-responsive design.
Additionally, the seminar will introduce participants to other digital tools and resources available for free, broadening their toolkit for climate-responsive design. The seminar will include hands-on interaction with professional daylighting measurement equipment.
The seminar's structure emphasizes hands-on practice, allowing ample opportunity for addressing both individual and collective queries. In this collaborative environment, each participant will develop their own workflows and templates, in conjunction with the lecturer, to perform climate-based simulations and analysis. While basic knowledge of Rhino and Grasshopper is advantageous, it is not required for enrollment in the course.
