  • Program - SimAUD 2010 - Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design
    for architects to visually examine the spatial qualities of their designs Therefore knowledge of pictorial cues can be used as a design strategy to enrich the spatial experience In this paper luminance contrast is proposed as an effective depth cue and design strategy Lighting based perceptual studies are challenged by the dynamics of the luminous environments in physical experimental settings Computer simulation allows the study of lighting variability throughout the day and year in a systematic manner This paper utilizes a computational framework to simulate perceptual reality Psychophysical experiments are conducted in this alternative environment 3D scenes and the resulting 2D imagery are utilized to investigate the impact of lighting patterns and luminance contrast on depth perception The results of the study demonstrate that luminance variations within a space impacts the perceived distance as much as they impact the luminance contrast between the task and the background Application of this pictorial cue is demonstrated through architectural and urban design examples program top Abstracts Architect oriented Session Toward Architect friendly Energy Evaluation Tools Lieve Weytjens and Griet Verbeeck Hasselt University Several studies demonstrate the importance of integrating energy analyses in the architectural design process For this a wide variety of building performance simulation programs are currently available However most of these tools are not in tune with the architects approach and are not suitable for early design stages when major decisions are made Despite recent developments addressing the use of simulation in the design process DP the uptake by architects is still limited Further the importance of user s needs has repeatedly been reported in literature but has rarely been investigated from an architect s point of view However researchers and design tool developers need this information to improve the compatibility of existing tools with the architectural DP and to develop new tools This research focuses on the use of energy evaluation tools by architects and aims at a better understanding of the architect s preferences for these tools The concept of architect friendliness was studied via interviews with 9 Flemish architects and via a large scale survey among 629 Flemish architects The results provide important information for the development of energy tools that better fit the DP and better meet the architect s expectations Finally a conceptual framework specifying the concept of architect friendliness is proposed program top Schedule Calibrated Occupant Behavior Simulation Rhys Goldstein Alex Tessier and Azam Khan Autodesk Research Building performance simulation promises to reduce the future impact of buildings on the environment by helping architects predict the energy demand associated with different design options We present a new method for simulating occupant behavior in buildings a key phase in the prediction of energy use Our method first inputs the recorded activities of actual building occupants then randomly generates fictional schedules with similar behavioral patterns The main contribution of this work is a mathematical technique in which an arbitrary set of factors can be used to select plausible activity types durations and numbers of participants during a simulation A prototype model was implemented to test the method and results obtained to date suggest that the generated occupant schedules are believable when compared both qualitatively and quantitatively to real occupant schedules program top Finding Synergy in Simulation Modeling by Architects and Engineers in Conceptual Design Alexander Hirsig Harvard University Graduate School of Design The interest in having architects utilize building simulation software to better inform conceptual design decisions has been present in the design industry for more than a decade yet the adoption of simulation by architects in practice has been slow Past research into the barriers of adoption has often looked through the lens of particular software with conclusions aimed at improving the tools interface and applicability to the architects process While software has made great advancement we hear more often today of the engineer stepping forward to apply simulation to the conceptual design process rather than the architect learning to use simulation In a survey of ten North American firms diverse in offering design and or engineering services individual practices for incorporating simulation into conceptual design were compared The more common presence of the engineer in conceptual design modeling promises a new collaborative approach to the sustainable design process overcoming a significant barrier to the architects own adoption while highlighting a need for greater efficiencies in communication between software and analysis time program top Abstracts The Power of Data Session 210 King Street A Dataset for Integrated Performance Assessment Ramtin Attar Venk Prabhu Michael Glueck and Azam Khan Autodesk Research This paper presents a Building Information Modeling BIM re creation of a designated heritage building located in Toronto Canada By taking advantage of BIM as a centralized database which describes both geometric and semantic aspects of a building this model can be leveraged as a source of input for many forms of analysis In addition to the BIM model we present a comprehensive point cloud dataset gathered using terrestrial laser scanning technology Based on an existing and a living building this model is an ideal candidate for simulations that can be cross referenced with information gathered on site program top Intuitive Structures Applications of Dynamic Simulations in Early Design Stage Andrzej Zarzycki New Jersey Institute of Technology Developments in digital design have brought a new design freedom into architecture Emerging tectonic trends combined with research into new materials and fabrication technologies make it possible to pursue imaginative designs with new expectations of space and form However these innovative designs often exist exclusively as visual propositions deprived of the deeper structural constructional or functional logic necessary for well developed designs Similarly the proliferation of analysis software tools has helped engineers to calculate sophisticated structural models yet this ability seldom translates back into architecture Consequently these two parallel developments while promising in their individual capabilities fall short in terms of synergizing into successful designs To bring these two distinct components together this paper discusses the strategies for generative design validation using dynamics based modeling tools that realistically portray

  • Wrap-up - SimAUD 2010 - Symposium on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design
    on Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design has made this event a great success I sincerely enjoyed working with the authors in preparation for the symposium and meeting the presenters in Orlando The question periods often became engaging conversations and the diversity under the umbrella of simulation meant that our collective dialog is starting from a broad vocabulary The warmth of the group has led to new friendships that will help us to collaborate and communicate to highlight and elevate the value of simulation for the built environment I anxiously look forward to talking with you all throughout the year and to seeing you again in Boston for SimAUD 2011 Sincerely Azam Khan A special thanks to all the presenters Ramtin Attar Autodesk Research David Benjamin Columbia University Ultan Byrne University of Toronto Michael Glueck Autodesk Research Rhys Goldstein Autodesk Research Holger Graf Fraunhofer Institute Sean Hanna University College London Alexander Hirsig Harvard University Richard Howard Autodesk Inc Ivanka Iordanova Université de Montréal Ian Keough Buro Happold Consulting Engineers Azam Khan Autodesk Research Yoshihiro Kobayashi Arizona State University Maryam Maleki Simon Fraser University Maria Mingallon Architectural Association School of Architecture Nick Puckett University of Kentucky Pedro Santos Fraunhofer Institute Virginia
