For this module, I used the Parametric Tower - Twisting Rectangular Mass. I set the initial values to 45* twist, 80’ width and depth at the top, and 250’ and 150’ width and depth at the base. The dimension to be flexed was the building height which started at a height of 650’ and went up to 720’. These dimensions stayed within the footprint constraints and the 1.2 million to 1.5 million gross floor area requirement.
First, the parameter of height to be tested and the results of gross floor area, gross surface area, and gross volume are defined. Then these are fed into the custom node that gets the output parameter value for each case. The values to be tested and ran through this node. Then, the results are compiled into a list and exported to an excel file for sharing.
