Software to drive adaptive facades

Software to drive adaptive facades

“In future, climate and technology will both play a major role in defining facades of the building,” opines Ruchi Mishra, DGM - Architect, Rudrabhishek Enterprises Ltd (REPL). For instance, she points out the role of software such as Rhino and Grasshopper in enabling architects to design and resolve parametric designs, and perform climatic and solar studies. Such studies enable architects to come up with complex designs with adaptive facades, which she sees as the future of commercial buildings and independent residences. However, “cost constraints will limit the mass usage of adaptive facades in group housing projects,” she adds.
