Daylight optimisation using parametric dynamic façades to improve energy efficiency
Buildings account for approximately a third of the total energy consumption in the world. A promising approach to achieve energy efficiency, daylight optimisation and end users’ comfort can be obtained by adopting dynamic façades into the design, utilising a parametric and environmental analysis approach. This paper provides a comprehensive literature review of the detailed analysis of the design patterns, research features, optimisation and techniques of the dynamic façades used to achieve energy efficiency through daylight optimisation. The paper represents the results of a cross-case analysis method of secondary data of diverse types of dynamic façades optimisation approaches, which helped to find that parametric design and environmental analysis of the dynamic façade systems used to optimise daylight is essential to achieve energy efficiency, leading to a proposed road map for implementing this methodology.
