The Case Analysis of Green Office Buildings through Physical Environment Simulation

Xiaojian Bi, Conghong Liu

Abstract: This paper is aimed to analyze the design process of three green office buildings designed by Foster + Partners, through physical environment simulation. Simulation tools can provide the quantitative statistics to the rational judgment about the typical green architecture design logic, and make it possible to represent the generation of architectural forms more exactly and clearly, which consequently contributes to the summary of strategies and method about green office buildings practice and the methodological guidance for green architecture practice.
