Abstract

This paper proposes a novel concept and practice to engage the BIM model as a control system of building energy performance service. This issue can be divided into two sub-issues including the development of more eco-friendly façade which can interact with its local environment, and the related active control system which can process the environmental parameters for eco-friendly actions. This research designs the Parametric Adaptive Skin System (PASS) to engage the adaption of natural sunlight use for higher building performance. PASS consists of kinetic façade components dominated by the BIM-based parametric engine called Dynamo. The PASS prototype demonstrates that the workflows is successful in using a real light sensor plus simulated solar terms to drive the interaction of virtual Revit model and physical PASS model.
