Abstract

The kinetic expression of building has been the sublime pursuit of contemporary architectural design in recent years, but the kinetic components of building also may further the building energy efficiency. This article suggested kinetic envelopes responding to extreme climate conditions with a great range of changes may offer a promising building energy saving. This research reviewed important literatures involving kinetic/interactive building projects and Building Information Modeling (BIM). Then, the study placed it into a design case as the implementation by using programming and Autodesk Revit's Application Programming Interface (API). In conclusion, this article developed a prototypical tool, for the design case, which offers an effective access to connect computational building modeling and climatic parameters, and in turn facilitates the new approach to sustainable buildings.
