Languages: English

This paper presents the application of geometric modeling and various performance simulation tools in architectural design, highlighting their respective impact on the design decisions made in the process. Based on the experiences gained in this process, a critical review of the potentials and problems of current simulation tools and simulation-based design decision-making strategies is offered. Particular attention is given to the crucial dialectic of process and tool in supporting knowledge transfer and decision?making in building design. Suggestions for improvements to current performance simulation tools and future alternative building simulation environments are discussed.
