List your three or four guiding design goals using this format for each goal:

Goal 1: Maximize the natural light inside the building

  • Measure:  Amount of indoor area can be lighted up by the sun
  • Targets:
    • 30% of indoor area can be exposed under the sun every Day.
  • Strategies:
    • one design strategy that I’d like to explore in my design to achieve this goal
    • a second design strategy for achieving this goal

Goal 2: Passive design to allow wind through the building

  • Measure:  wind simulation model?
  • Targets:
    • reduce 20% of the building cooling system required.
  • Strategies:
    • design for channels that allow the wind to go through.
    • Create shadows for area people use the most.

Goal 3: reduce 30% of energy needed compared to traditional buildings

  • Measure:  solar energy generated
  • Targets:
    • reduce 30% of the building energy required.
  • Strategies:
    • Install solar panels on the roof and PV glasses that can store the energy.
