Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ANALYZING AND DESIGNING AN ARCHITECTURAL STRUCTURE USING PARAMETRIC ANALYSIS
Abstract:
According to various embodiments of the invention, systems and methods are provided for parametrically analyzing architectural structures. Such embodiments may be utilized by architects and engineers as tools that assist in designing architectural structures that achieve specific design goals, such as those related to sustainability. For example, an embodiment may comprise a system that: (i) provides a sustainability on an architectural structure design created using a computer-assisted design (CAD) tool, and then (ii) applies a design option with a parametric value to that design to determine one or more improvements that provide a desired sustainability. Various embodiments may be accessed through a web-based platform, which provides a user with easier access and better collaboration between and among design team members.
