Penndesign Environmental Systems
Critic: Chandler Ahrens
Fall 2015

Based on initial case study in first assignment, we are trying to design prototypical façade systems for a generic box building and measure the performance levels through analytical software in the next step. The objective of the design process is to identify performative goals that will be modeled into a parametric façade system.

The site is located in the city of Miami, which features hot and humid in southeast region of United States. The climate condition reminds us to define a dynamic shading and moisture-reducing system. So the whole facade has two functional layer, wchich means shading panel layer and water curtain. When the moisture air pass through the curtain, it will condense because of temperature difference.​
