Developing a framework for performance-aware urban zoning and real estate development.
How can we use daylighting simulations to rewrite zoning laws?
This presentation was developed as the final chapter of my thesis project at MIT Architecture. It uses a number of new environmental design modeling tools woven together with Grasshopper workflows to propose a new framework for performance-aware urban zoning and real estate development.
The project evolved to become a widely cited journal paper and helped me receive the Arthur Rotch Special Prize for highest academic achievement as a graduating student from MIT Architecture. It also served as a bridge between the 2 disciplinary groups I was a part of, Architecture & Urbanism and Building Technology.
