It is one thing to know how to design an NZEB and another to communicate the idea in a compelling manner to the client and other team members. This requires some skills and understanding of how to use simulations during the early design process. Communicating building design performance through meaningful and effective graphics is integral to achieving an NZEB. In many ways, Project Stasio aims to do this. In this webinar, the speakers will introduce the basic principles of using graphics to communicate a high-performance story, as well as a methodology for architects and modelers to ask questions about simulations effectively.
Project Stasio is an online website populated with crowd-sourced simulation graphics which helps improve the way modelers graphically communicate with designers. This webinar brings Project Stasio team to talk about the following in a panel discussion while sharing their professional experience:
1) What and why the communication gap?
2) How graphics can cover the gap?
3) How to get the point across in practice?
