Inner city environments
This project is designed to quantify and model the potential microclimatic influences and impacts of a building, within a precinct of buildings, through interrogation of a 3D CAD model. This would enable planners/developers/designers to model this interaction at a conceptual level ― and potentially provide Local Authorities Australia wide with a tool to rapidly quantify impacts of building designs within a precinct or region of buildings. Presently, there are individual tools available for the assessment of shading, thermal, radiation and wind flow characteristics of a proposed design which require assessment by expert users.
This project proposes a beta tested parametric analysis interface for designers to undertake assessment at the planning/concept design stage of a project using their 3D CAD building model.
