Discrete Optimization in Architecture: Building Envelope

This booklet explores the tremendous modular platforms that meet standards: they permit the production of structurally sound free-form constructions, and they're produced from as few varieties of modules as attainable. Divided into elements, it provides Pipe-Z (PZ) and Truss-Z (TZ) structures. PZ is extra primary and types spatial mathematical knots by means of assembling one form of unit (PZM).

2 Class B—Control Processing Elements In this class we can find the components that gather information collected in the input phase through sensors and interfaces, and “decide” on the course of action to take. These decisions are based on different logical steps, pre-defined policies to be carried out by actuators and that were decided by a design team. The orders, translated as electrical impulses, are then sent to the relevant parts. For this class we shall discuss the key policies that must be taken into account by any intelligent envelope protocol, and the main types of control systems available.

Therefore, although the elements do not have any moving parts, careful and intelligent study is still needed prior to their application in the intelligent façade, as they have significant impact on its morphology. Summarizing this example, the generic methodology that is followed for these type of devices is the following: (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) Definition of project objectives. Selection of potential candidate elements to fulfill the objectives. Dimensioning and testing (through computer simulation or prototyping).
