Cover Story (view full-size image): In the building industry, in recent decades, the adaptation of urban and building designs to the changing climate has been given great heed. Continually changing weather conditions can be incorporated into the conceptual design stage through leveraging digital designing, leading towards climate-optimized architectural solutions. The adverse impacts of the wind fluxes, such as high wind loads on buildings and pedestrian wind discomfort caused by the absence or acceleration of wind, can be transformed into benefits through architecture. This case study blends the advantages of parametric designing with CFD analysis to examine the complex relations of the wind phenomenon in the context of architecture. View this paper
