Abstract

How does building form express energy performance through design? Design, in our opinion, increases its agency as energy considerations move to early stages of design. Shifting energy evaluations earlier, as the review of literature shows, highlights a gap in the utilization of building geometry to reduce energy consumption. The limited utilization of building geometry in design requires redress to provide design greater agency. Then the agency of design shifts from checking building performance to optimizing design processes and methods. At the same time, readers will gain insight into use of parametric investigations of formal building factors.
