While recent advances in computational building performance modeling have been remarkable, their impact on building design community has been limited. In this paper we focus on one possible contributing factor, i.e., insufficient support for navigation in design-performance space. To address this shortcoming, we concentrate on a process that involves: i) generation of alternative building designs, ii) performing parametric performance simulations, and iii) exploration of the resulting design-performance information space.
