Stefania Dinea: The purpose of the report is to identify the design choices ( i.e. location, climate factors, volumetric, material selection, usage of the building, etc.) that affect the energy demand of buildings, with a focus on mixed-use development. In order to aid in better design choices of an architect, the research aims to develop a simplified design method with the help of formulating and implementing parametric optimization. This essentially involves collaboration between engineering and the architecture domain in order to quantify and validate early design decisions in relation to energy demand of the building.

Anurag Verma: This is an early stage study of the effect of an atrium and building orientation on the daylighting and cooling load of an office building. The thesis is an outcome of a collaborative work between the author and an ar-chitect. It aims to answer design questions that were posed in the early stages by the team of a student architect and the author himself relating to the daylighting performance of the building located in Stockholm, Sweden. Two design elements of interest that were to be evaluated were decided: the orientation of the building and the effect of introducing an atrium in the building.
