Methode zur Visualisierung parametrischer und interaktiver Architekturkonzepte in Echtzeit

B. Popfinger, M. Bauer

Abstract: This paper introduces the development of a CAD- tool for the spatial visualisation of digital interactive architectural designs in real time. It targets the presentation and optimisation of spaces using parametric design methods. The aim of the development is the provision of simulation algorithms, which, along with the light distribution, also prepares the processing of local climate factors and user specific influences. The process will be implemented in the CAD-System environment "Rhinoceros" and "Grasshopper" using the daylight simulator DIVA. External influences can be integrated using the interface "Firefly" in connection with a microcontroller. The application will be evidenced by means of a sample example design with different combinations of climate factors and interactive user influences.
