The intended task was to study early massing concepts for climate responsiveness using Sefaira as an analytical tool. We were to work rapidly to analyze a series of massing concepts during the schematic design phase and provide feedback to the Boora design team to determine which factors/outputs to be studied such as daylighting, energy use, and building orientation. We received three massing models from Boora to study in Sefaira and compare EUI, Fabric Conduction Loss, Peak heating hours, and Monthly Consumption. Some of the results we were coming to evolved the initial task and drove this project down a different path. What we ended up doing was helping Boora understand the information that Sefaira was giving them by trouble shooting specific model data results and adjusting input values.
