The Design Decision I Studies
This problem is set in a hypothetical Stanford in Washington campus. Stanford is to build a new building in the centralized oval and are trying to find the location, orientation and glazing program which will maximize glazing for daylighting but minimize the average solar incident on the building also taking into account the existing buildings.

Below graphs evaluates the relationship between the v and u positions and how they affect average solar incidence/area. Among many relationship I studied in the report document on BIM360, this relationship was most fundamental given how the position of this new tower affects the campus skyline significantly, and from an energy, glazing and aesthetic point of view, the position and how it affects the set evaluators is what will largely drive the final decision on where the building is located! Overall, shown in the below graphs was the general relationship that average solar incidence decreased in the positive u direction and lower v values. Glad to have overcame many obstacles I came across particularly with this assignment and my Dynamo software and I am thankful to Nico and the Prof. Katz for the assistance and encouragement which made me go forward on this assignment!
