Ecophysiological Architecture

Ecophysiological Architecture

Morphology and physiology are two sides of the same coin. Here are selected projects from the studio I taught at CASE RPI, investigating the architectural potential of sustainable building building strategies inspired by eco-physiological mechanisms of animals.

insolar louver system

insolar louver system

This definition extends the GH powercopy to be parametrically associated with the solar geometry obtained through the insolar radiation algorithm. It is part of a larger series related to the idea of Environmental Parametrics

incident solar | day

incident solar | day

This is a re-written version of the sun position algorithm based on NOAA's published algorithm. It is written in VB.net. This definition displays the accumulation of direct solar radiation throughout the day in false color.

incident solar | current time

incident solar | current time

This is a re-written version of the sun position algorithm based on NOAA's published algorithm. It is written in VB.net. This definition displays the solar geometry, insolar radiation and shadow of the object. This version lets you control the time of day.

incident solar | analemma

incident solar | analemma

This is a re-written version of the sun position algorithm based on NOAA's published algorithm. It is written in VB.net. This definition displays the accumulation of direct solar radiation throughout the year in false color. Daily solar positions are also displayed as an analemma.
