Dynamic Building Environment Dashboard: Spatial Simulation Data Visualization in Sustainable Design

When communicating the results of environmental building performance analysis, It Is Important to display resultant information in order (1) to be holistically understood and (2) to guide architectural design decisions. This article proposes a spatial dashboard of environmental performance data as a means to intuitively relate architectural form and performance and achieve the two goals above. The dashboard visualizes daylighting, natural ventilation, and thermal comfort information spatially localized throughout axonometric representations of buildings. Results can be customized by time of day, adding time as another analytical dimension in addition to space. Environmental data, normally hidden, is visually revealed in relation to architectural form. The dashboard enables intuitive design decisions to be made relative to performance measures across time and space.
