This paper investigates the possibility of encoding architectural design intentions into a generative design system, using as a test bed the School of Architecture at Oporto [Portugal], designed by Álvaro Siza.
Luisa Caldas and Leslie Norford
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 navig

This report introduces the rapid prototype method newly developed to design individual housings.
Koji Ono and Yasushige Morikawa
This paper is focused on a mathematical model applied to both building thermal analysis and control systems design. A lumped approach is used to model the room air temperature and a multi-layer model for the building envelope.
Nathan Mendes, Gustavo H.C. Oliveira and Humberto X. de Araújo
There are two purposes for this paper, one is that the calculation method, which took sunlight into consideration using All Sky Model, is shown, and another is executing simulations by this method.
Masaki Manabe, Hitoshi Yamazaki and Shoich Kojima
The combinations of parameter effecting optimum energy consumption and good open view for designing side-window of office buildings are proposed.
S. Chungloo, B. Limmeechokchai and S. Chungpaibulpatana
COMIS simulates multizone airflow and pollutant transport. It has been developed in an international context at LBNL and within IEA Annex 23.
Viktor Dorer, Anne Haas, Werner Keilholz, Roger Pelletret, Andreas Weber
This paper contains the results of an on-going collaborative research effort by the departments of Architecture and Computer Science of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, U.S.A., to develop a computer visualization application fo

This article introduces building simulation in conjunction with a HVAC system, especially a split system, considering thermal and moisture behaviors of the perimeter walls.
Gottfried Knabe and Huu-Thoi Le
The use of daylighting in buildings can be an improvement when trying to enhance the environmental quality and the energy efficiency of them.
Aldo Fanchiotti, Claudia Amorim
We describe a mathematical model applied to analysis of hygrothermal behavior of buildings.
Nathan Mendes and Gerson H. dos Santos
Estimating  relative  humidity  from  outdoor  air temperature and humidity, and indoor air temperature is a means to assess thermal comfort conditions when indoor relative humidity is not available.
Eduardo L. Krüger
CODYBA is a software addressed to designers, teachers and research organisms. This software determines the energetic fluxes of a building zone. The basic data are the zones geometry and constitution.
Jean NOEL, Jean-Jacques ROUX, Paulo Smith SCHNEIDER
Future cities are likely to be characterised by a greater level of renewable energy systems deployment.
Born F J, Clarke J A and Johnstone C M
Horizontal and vertical brises soleil are dominant elements in the modernist tropical architecture.
Michael Laar
The energy efficiency of switchable (variable transmittance) windows having a control system based on occupancy, temperature and impinging solar radiation is evaluated.
J. Karlsson
This paper reports on the progress of the S2 project. This is an ongoing effort toward an Internet-based environment for distributed collaborative performance-based building design and evaluation.
K. P. Lam,A. Mahdavi, R. Brahme, Z. Kang, M. E. Ilal, N.H. Wong, S. Gupta, K. S. Au
This paper deals with comparison between the CFD method and the zonal one, and also model experimental validation. The zonal method consists of a dwelling decomposition in several isothermal air zones, in contact with walls. 
Mohammedi Mehdi, Lainault Franck, Frederic Milcent, Jean-Pierre Petit
This paper describes the modelling and simulation work that was carried out to support the design team of the new "Indonesian Jungle" pavilion in Prague Zoo.
