Building Simulations and High-Performance Buildings Research
Building Simulations and High-Performance Buildings Research: Use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) for Integrated Design and Analysis
This article discusses relationships between building performance simulations and design, and the role of building performance research in architectural practice. The first part of the article presents research activities at Perkins+Will Tech Lab, and the second part discusses the role of performance simulations in the design of high-performance buildings, methods for integrating analysis procedures with the design, as well as case studies.
