Amid recent concern about overheating in Passivhaus, this study investigates geometrical implication of façade design to alleviate overheating in new build energy-efficient homes in the UK. The study proposes self-shading façade design as a less conventional approach to passively protecting the...
This paper considers the application of comfort parameters as a mechanism for building performance analysis and control. It challenges traditional methods of evaluating zonal comfort through thermostatic dry-bulb temperature alone. In contrast, it creatively applies a ‘calibrated’ Comfort Tool...
Climate responsive design has been a topic of widespread concern and discussion over the past period of time. This paper integrates the thinking heuristic method based on energy strategy pattern with visualization digital technology in a new design framework. Describes an early stage workflow...
In order to better evaluate the lifetime performance of glass panel facade systems, this study firstly proposes to conduct a full-scale wind resistance, air/water infiltration, and seismic resistance tests. Two specimens were designed, constructed, and tested for this purpose. A fatigue process...
In response to the need to mitigate urban heat risks, green infrastructure enhancements have been widely advocated in recent times. To meet the challenges of implementing enhancements in dense cities, surface greening approaches such as vertical living walls have gained increased prominence....
