Article
Local energy management programs have the potential to flatten the so-called “duck curve” and enable greater use of renewables by engaging residents to work toward shared sustainability goals. However, there are challenges with managing energy behavior to achieve desired outcomes. This study uses the Energy Cultures framework to examine motivations...
Article
A modular-based Green Design Studio (GDS) platform has been developed in this study for fast and accurate performance analysis for early stage green building design. The GDS platform aims to simplify the design and analysis process by embedding performance parameters into design elements in modules and employing near-real-time model for whole build...
Article
This article presents the ongoing development and testing of a "shared realities" computational workflow to support iterative user-centered design with an interactive system. The broader aim is to address the challenges associated with observing and recording user interactions within the context of use for improving the performance of an interactiv...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Leveraging Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for spatiotemporal visualization and analysis of simulated UBEM datasets and real-world data simultaneously can assist in identifying opportunities, as well as potential barriers, to energy efficient and climate adaptation strategies. However, current GIS-based models that support interactive explorat...
Article
Visualizing energy-based data according to multiple perspectives and performance criteria is critical to understanding its spatiotemporal character, impacts on comfort, and meaning in the design decision-making process. This research examines how a virtual environment for design and analysis (VEDA) enhances design decision making through visualizat...
Article
The human body's perception of ambient energy flows in the built environment is a complex yet important consideration in designing high performance architectural systems, buildings and cities. Bess Krietemeyer, Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Syracuse University and Head of the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL) at...
Chapter
Current architectural design methods for visualization and analysis of the relationship between energy flows, building demands, and occupant control remain limited because existing software tools and virtual reality environments are not yet integrated into a seamless feedback loop. This chapter presents the development of an interactive visualizati...
Article
Emerging materials present opportunities to fundamentally shift current expectations of dynamic building envelope functionality towards systems that can respond to occupant needs while meeting the energy demands of buildings. In order to assess the environmental, social, and architectural opportunities that are increasing with responsive building e...
Article
Architectural design research in next-generation building systems is transforming dynamic building envelope performance towards systems that not only meet the energy demands of buildings but also respond to occupant preferences for aesthetics, comfort and control. Although research provides tremendous potential for future systems, existing tools an...
Conference Paper
Contemporary commercial building types continue to incorporate predominantly glazed envelope systems, despite the associated challenges with thermal regulation, visual comfort, and increased energy consumption. The advantage of window systems that could adaptively respond to changes in the environment while meeting variable demands for building ene...
Article
Architect Neil Katz first attended Smartgeometry (SG) in 2006 and has participated in and led workshops at many subsequent events including SG 2007 with Tobias Schwinn and SG 2012 with Bess Krietemeyer. Katz brings a highly valuable practice perspective to the workshops, as he has worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) for many years using comp...
Article
Modern glazing systems have historically developed in such a way that opportunities for user adaptation of the building envelope have slowly diminished. Design values such as consistency, automation, a homogenously maintained interior environment, and most recently energy efficiency have been systematically prioritized over other values. Individual...
