Summer Solstice

When analyzing wind effect on the context and the site, a primary focus was on the overheated period to consider ventilation as a passive cooling strategy. When observing speeds and direction, it can be observed that on average, the site location is situated in an area that is relatively unaffected by the wind

In this criteria chart we have listed a breakdown of different strategies that can be adjusted and introduced to help the comfort level within the building.

The shading chart for December through June shows that there isnt much need for shading.

Upon observing wind effect on the site location during the underheated period, on average, it can be seen that the site is in direct exposure to the wind. A possible implication of this would be the use of wind energy to power heating strategies of the building.

The shading chart for June through December shows that there is need for shading to help reduce overheating during some of the summer months.
