Disrupting the Status Quo with Early-Stage BIM-Based Energy Modeling

Design history reveals highly differentiated types of simulations that precede the computationally-driven modeling with which it is often synonymous today. When considering the impetuses shaping these types, it is curious to consider to what end simulations are most helpful. The invited content of TAD: Simulations suggests each possess varied levels of fidelity helpful for supporting back-end architectural operations toward actualization. Some of simulation’s design-actionable processes featuring levels of intrinsic fidelity include Representing, Modeling, and Prototyping.
